Cut & Paste (an exploration of contemporary collage) w/ DAN CASSIDY
October 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
One event on an unspecified date at 11:00am
Collage has been used in one form or another since at least the invention of paper, around 200 BCE. Collage in western art became popular around 100 years ago when Pablo Picasso started including it in his paintings. It was popular in prewar Germany and gave rise to the pop art movement in the sixties. Now collage is popular again, owing to the easy access to an almost infinite library of images available via the internet.
This class will touch on the various methods available today, from cut and paste through digital manipulation (and a tutorial in Puchior).
Bring – any collage materials that you want to use but source images will be available. Your favorite scissors and/or cutting tools that you prefer.
