Art of Collage

  • Duthy Street Art 6 Duthy Street Unley, SA, 5061 Australia (map)

4 hour Semi-Private Speciality Workshop in the art of Collage - painting with cut-outs

IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS and experienced Painters

Fee: $150, does not include Canvas. I recommend A2 - 42 × 59.4 cm size wood or canvas board.

Those attending will explore alternative ways of producing a painting by layering small cut-out pieces of various coloured, or black and white, images and texts from magazines and newspapers.

 As you can see here the background is made up of mostly b/w news print, The shoes from reds and oranges, the legs from skin coloured images.

I suggest use a wood panel or canvas board and that we keep the art works to 40cm x 50.8cm. Too big and it will take quite a long time to cover. I will have the suggested boards available to purchase on the day.

One you have decided on the image you would like to use please email it to me and I will arrange to have it photocopied to the same size of the canvas/wood boards for you to then trace onto the surface. If you are confident with your drawing skills you can simply draw up on the day... I guess it depends how complicated.

Then when you are happy with the end result I'll show you how to professionally varnish and prepare your work of art ready to hang your finished product. 

Collage making materials will be supplied, however please bring some of your own magazines and newspapers.

I will have the following available for you to use - but if you have your own from this list please bring too;

  • Wood or Canvas board
  • A collection of magazines and news papers
  • Scissors
  • Glues for collage
  • Varnish
  • Lead Pencils, Charcoals
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Great Ideas, instruction, help, guidance

*I recommend using a wood panel Canvas which you can purchase on the day from Duthy Street Art (the shop is open during the workshop) or bring your own
