Collage to Painting Workshop

Collage to Painting Classes in New York

Collage to Painting Course

Cost: $300.00

This workshop explores the interrelationship between collage and painting. Students will employ the abstract medium of collage as a means of sketching and as a springboard for ideas in painting. Students will be urged to push the limits of these mediums and their ideas. As the work done in one medium assists and influences one's vision in the other, the collaboration between process and concept will encourage the production of less planned and more unexpected images.

Meets Weekly: Saturday, Sunday 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
