MANY SIGNIFICANT ARTISTS HAEV GLUED DOWN PIECES OF CUT PAPER SINCE PICASSO FIRST CUT OUT AND STRUCK A PIECE OF REAL NEWSPAPER ONTO A CUBIST COLLAGE OVER 100 YEARS AGO WHICH WAS REVOLUTIONARY AT THE TIME. THE SURREALIST MAX ERNST INGENIOUSLY CRAFTED TOGETHER CUT UP ILLUSTRATIONS FROM VICTORIAN NOVELS TO PRODUCE A TOTALLY NEW OUTLANDISH FREUDIAN NARRATIVE AND HANNAH HOCH AND JOHN HEARTFIELED IN GERMANY HAD ANTIFASCIST AND SOCIOLOGICAL MOTIVES. WHEREAS DAVID BOWIE RANDOMLY TOOK SCISSORS TO HIS LYRICS TO ELICIT NEW MEANING.

THIS HANDS-ON WORKSHOP WILL HELP YOU GET TO GRIPS WITH CREATIVE COLLAGE AND FIND YOUR OWN PERSONAL WAY. 

COLLAGE IS ALSO A GREAT WAY TO BRING A NEW CREATIVITY TO YOUR IMAGERY IF YOU'RE STUCK WITH WHAT TO DRAW OR PAINT, AS WELL AS BEING AN ART FORM IN ITS OWN RIGHT.
