We will see the history of collage, from the avant garde movements to the collage scene nowadays, in order to achieve a solid background and lots of references.
After that, we will make collages from different assumptions, exploring different ways of creation and forms of expression.
We will make a collective analysis of the works. Through the analysis, we will talk about concept, message, composition, contrast, color, texture, balance, tension..
The main thing is to spend these evenings between scissors, glue and papers, to work with our hands and create a space for knowledge, exchange and debate.
The essential idea of the workshop is to stimulate the creativity, that the participants develop their creative and communicative capacities and, of course, to have fun.
