We'll begin with a basic sketch of your chosen landscape image, on which we'll note what shades and shapes will be used for each element such as the sky or trees. Then we'll get to the fun part of cutting out shapes from our media sources. We'll focus on circle and rectangle-shaped pieces, but feel free to get adventurous.
Most materials can be found in your home or are inexpensive to purchase. You'll need:
- a canvas (white paper, cardboard, poster board, etc.)
- media sources (magazines, books, scrap/craft paper, etc.)
-glue (I recommend Scotch Wrinkle-Free Glue Stick or any clear stick, but use what you have!)
-objects to trace circles (a few varying sizes like a button, bottle cap, quarter, etc.)
-landscape image for reference
- Optional: a sealant like ModgePodge to protect your work.
The class will last for an hour. To make progress, you'll have the option of sketching your scene and starting to cut your shapes before class begins. Once your project is completed, we'd love for you to send a picture of the finished collage so we can share it with the rest of class.
