In-class demonstrations cover cutting and gluing techniques, inkjet and Xerox transfer with acrylic mediums and methods for combining collage with various materials. Strategies for how to begin a collage with drawing, tracing and photography are explored. Students learn about the basic elements of art (color, value, line, shape, pattern and texture) and how these elements synthesize to create visual experience. Students are asked to interpret general themes such as portrait, landscape or still-life in class assignments.
