Collage & Assemblage Workshop: It’s Not Just Cutting & Pasting

  • Contemporaneo Asheville Gallery & Shop 4 Biltmore Avenue Asheville, NC, 28801 United States (map)


The quintessential modern approach to art making – collage and assemblage is everywhere- large and small scale. It is how so many contemporary artists essentially think- what kinds of materials can be combined, and to what surprising effect? Boundaries have changed, and we can look at virtually anything as a potential raw material. In this workshop, we will discuss a bit of the history of collage/assemblage, what rules of composition STILL apply (yes – even modern art has rules!), and how to build an assemblage or collage with intention, and make it successful.  Material options will be supplied, but please bring found or collected items of your own, objects or materials of interest- ANYTHING that inspires you!  That is the first, integral step for this process.
