The Art of Juxtaposition 2 will extend the 2D graphic collage explorations of The Art of Juxtaposition 1 and provide an opportunity to consider collage as the basis for making paintings and sculptures.

During this course we will look at the work of various artists known for their use of Collage and gain inspiration to construct new images for ourselves. It is not necessary to do The Art of Juxtaposition 1 and 2 courses in chronological order. Collage is easy and relies only on a willingness to play with possibilities. Students will be individually supported to develop ideas that come from this practice and build a body of work.

As Madonna once said, 'we live in a material world!’. Finding new ways to engage with the materiality of stuff can be a means to make sense of the world for ourselves. Collage is an invitation to make new and surprising connections.
A range of printed material will be available but please bring anything you would particularly like to work with (i.e. paper / printed matter, children’s books, music scores, old dress patterns, maps, magazines, photographic books, comics, wallpapers, serviettes, tickets).

What you will learn:

  • Gain knowledge of artists known for collage
  • Construct collage images
  • Develop collage ideas into a series
  • Build a small body of collage work

This training is subsidised by the NSW government.
