Approaching Intuitive Collage in 3 Steps with Jeannette Brossart via Zoom
May 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$45
You might ask yourself how making a collage can be intuitive and organized at the same time. Artist Jeannette Brossart uses collage as a creative jumpstart for making other art and is always surprised and inspired by the results. Since she doesn’t like to draw and paint, she keeps a collage journal. Her “anything goes” intuitive process provides her with an abundance of questions and possibilities: where to start, what to use first, what does she feel like doing. Using a 3-step framework makes it easy to adapt to your own artistic and creative strengths. For example, Jeannette has created pages and pages with just images and text from National Geographic magazines. This workshop will encourage participants to use papers full of color and texture that might be sitting on your desk, bits and scraps of treasures you can’t bear to part with, or parts of your own journal musings or letters from others.
Join Jeannette Brossart for some collage fun; she will be working in real time alongside you. This class will spend some time on material selection. Please have magazines, paper scraps, etc. available. You don’t have to cut anything out ahead of time, we recommend making copies of any materials you do not want to damage. After the material selection process, we’ll move on to assembly/composition and then reflection/sharing as desired.
Wide variety of images/text: magazines (OLD NAT GEOS are great for this! scrap papers, ephemera, repurposed art, journal pages, newspaper clippings, etc.
TIP: make copies if you do not want to use originals!
Adhesive and applicator: I prefer Mod Podge, but most white PVA/dry clear glues will work if you water them down. Foam or wide paintbrush will work OK for glue.
Base item to stick to: wood, cardboard, or double page thickness in an art journal works too.
Recommended extras: wax paper, scissors, baby wipes for hands/glue drips
** we won’t be using wet media like paint, marker, etc. in this class, but you can modify to add BEFORE the top layer of Mod Podge as you like.
Leader: Jeannette Brossart is a professional mosaic artist, public artist, and teaching artist in Durham, NC. Creative reuse is important to her and is reflected in her work which can be viewed at www.mothernaturemosaics.com
