KIDS CLASS: Creating Characters with Collage

July 22, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Learn how to create characters from the images we find in newspapers and discover the rewarding art of collaging!

Join tutor Lucy McGeown as we look at all the different ways in which we can create new images with the ones we find in newspapers and magazines.

In this session we will be looking at the ways artists such as Romare Bearden, John Stezaker and Donald Rodney use collage in their work to give us inspiration in how we can make our own unique characters by collaging found imagery.

These classes are designed for ages 7-10 yrs but we have both older and younger students join us.

We recommend parents join children in these sessions as it is a lovely activity to share together!

Everyone is welcome to join in on this Pay What You Can class… we know this is a difficult and uncertain time for many and we want to do our best to support you – Please pay what you can afford and our online classes will be able to run on a donations basis – if you are struggling, consider this one on the house! You just need to email us stating your situation at [email protected] and we’ll make it happen for you.
