Service Description

Immediate, playful, responsive, challenging and insanely fun – that's collage! Get inspired by masterwork collage examples, then dive into making your own collages with guidance and encouragement from professional collage artist Kat Honey. You’ll learn basic collage techniques as we work on both collages and decollages – and your personal expression will be actively encouraged. Come out and get stuck on collage! Date(s): Saturday, September 14th, 2024  Timing: 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM  Location: Quest Art School + Gallery  Fees: $120.00(Member Pricing), $140.00 (Non-Member Pricing)  Material List -Pencil, eraser, ruler & scissors  -Invisible tape and painters' green masking tape -Utility craft knife, small (recommend Olfa or X-acto) — and cutting mat -2 Glue sticks (recommend UHU) Substrates: -For bases, you need some heavy paper, like an inexpensive block or pad of mixed media or watercolour paper (140 lb) 9x12" – 12x18” -But you could also use any light cardstock, heavier drawing paper, bristol board, etc. -Wood panels can also make nice bases for more substantial collages Collage Materials -Picture-heavy books and magazines are perfect for collage. You can often get these at thrift stores. -And/or treat yourself: go to your local drug store to buy a few magazines ahead of time — enjoy them first — then you’ll have them for collaging! -Look for titles with lots of captivating full-page images. -You can also use coloured and patterned papers, newspapers, packaging, letters, old computer prints, stationery, painted papers, gelli prints, gift wraps, specialty papers, etc. -I like to buy scrapbooking paper pads at Wal-mart or Michaels — you can find some great solid colours, textures, patterns, etc. and they’re often acid-free. Online Image Sources -If you have a printer, you can search for images online and print them out for collaging. -If you’re going to re-work any image enough, copyright no longer applies — but if you want copyright-free images, here are a few good resources: Flickr Commons -Copyright-free images from dozens of Archives, Libraries, museums, and other organizations around the world.
