Using the work of “Medium” artists Jackson Burnside, Nettie Symonette, Jace Mckinney and Erica James as inspiration, participants will be led through the creation of collages that utilize traditional and non-traditional materials to express what inspires them and moves their spirit. Beginning with a brief tour of the exhibition, followed by a discussion and demonstration, participants will leave the NAGB with a completed collage that has their very own personal touch!
Collage, from the French verb coller, meaning 'to glue,' is the artistic process of gluing and assembling various materials to a flat surface. Collage can refer to both the actual procedure of cutting and pasting as well as to the final artistic product. Using a mixture of paper, paint, sand and any other materials that may be of interest, workshop participants will experiment with assembling various media on a flat surface to create a realistic, not so realistic or completely abstract art work. This a great activity to share with families or friends. Come to the NAGB and explore with us!
