Collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a technique of art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue". This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.
A collage may sometimes include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.

1st we will find an image or images to inspire our work and save it. 2nd we will create a gmail account for each of you. In the gmail account you will import your saved image, and then use their photo editing program. We will experiment with different ways to edit the image’s value so you can think about this when you collage it. 3rd we will print the images and then we will begin the drawing process to map out the collage IF that’s the way you want to approach it… It will depend on what method of collage and end-product you are going for. We can discuss your approach after you brainstorm.
Do you want to find one image and recreate it using text and collage techniques? Do you want to find more than one image and recreate them into one composition using text and collage techniques? Search for images you want to recreate and then narrow down how you want your composition layed out. We are editing the image to help you see the value contrast for your collage techniques. You will not have to recreate them exactly like that, but it will be a tool to help you. You can either grid your image and recreate it that way, or just totally free for all it… Talk to me
