Cress’ workshop will begin with a review of the basic elements/principles of design. Students will do warm-up projects to help them move out of their comfort zones and experiment with the exciting possibilities of collage.
Simplified, fun figure drawings will be introduced and can be incorporated into projects. Students will also crop personal photos, magazine pictures, and other images as a foundation for their collage.
Many options will be explored using a variety of materials to develop compositions. The goal is for each student to have a completed, or the beginnings of, one or more good compositions at the end of the workshop.
