DESIGN WITH COLLAGE WORKSHOP – ‘paper cut outs’

ELLA KRESTENSEN DESIGN

GAUGE GALLERY GLEBE APRIL 2ND 1030AM – 230PM

Ella shares with us her talents and passion for design with a ‘paper cut outs’ Design Collage workshop. The ‘paper cut outs’ collage workshop is exactly that! We use scissors and craft knives to cut out shapes - freehand (just like drawing and painting) to assemble our designs.

During the last decade of Henri Matisse’s life, he deployed two simple materials – white paper and gouache – to create works of wide-ranging colour and complexity. A pair of scissors was the tool Matisse used to transform paint and paper into a world of plants, animals, figures and shapes. He once said, “my line drawing is the purest and most direct translation of my emotion”. He described the ‘cut-outs’ process as “cutting directly into colour” and “drawing with scissors”.

The collage workshop will commence with a small number of micro collage exercises – these are designed to ‘jump start’ your creativity – especially if you have never attempted art or have little experience in art!

This is a fun way to explore visual balance, whilst working with colour, size, texture and the power of shapes – these exercises will intuitively build artistic confidence for your creative spirit!

ALL INCLUSIVE FOR DESIGN WITH COLLAGE WORKSHOP:

Participants will use Strathmore Mixed Media paper 23x30cm (160gm) ‘large collages’ and A5 white paper (80gm) ‘micro collage exercises’ – all acid free papers! Also, free-use of glossy magazines, a range of vibrant colourful papers, cardboard, plastic and found objects and a variety of acrylic paints - to design your collages.

We will be constructing our designs on 23cm x 30cm Strathmore Mixed Media Acid Free Paper (160gm). There’s a mini-exhibition/critique at days end.
