Cost: $410.00

The City itself could be thought of as a massive collage: a space where images and structures conjoin in unexpected ways. Historically, much of the work done with collage has been informed by the urban setting. Using this idea as a foundation, we will explore the medium of collage with paper, fabric, fibers, found objects, photographs and photo transfer. A wide range of acrylic mediums and their potential as adhesives will be explored. The use of traditional drawing and painting materials will also be incorporated. color and fundamental 2-D design principles will be covered. Each studio lesson will be accompanied by a presentation of a historically relevant collage artist. Students will be encouraged to actively engage with the urban environment in the development of their work.

  • 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.
