Event description

Description

Installation Collage with Meredith Hughes

Thursdays > 6:00pm – 8:30pm

Term 2 | 10 May – 14 June

This workshop is inspired by the collage of French Surrealists, contemporary installation practice and artistic traditions that use recycled materials. We will use found images and textures to create installation-based artwork. Each week, we will look at work by professional artists who use collage and installation differently and we will experiment with a variety of collage-based techniques.
