Text and Image: Telling Stories in Collage
Did you ever want to express yourself in words and images to make beautifully expressive collage? In this workshop with Vermont artist Jane Davies we will explore the power of image-word relationships by pushing beyond traditional “illustrated text” or “photo with caption” formats into a world of complex layers of meaning, exciting surprises, and personal expression.
We will use found text as well as learn many ways of creating our own text. Likewise, we’ll incorporate found images, personal photos, altered imagery (including transfers), and our own artwork. We’ll play with fanciful juxtapositions, create mood and atmosphere with color, explore new narrative possibilities, as well as learn basic techniques and principles of collage composition.
Visit Jane’s blog for a view into her work and teaching skills. Very inspiring!
