Collage: Paper as Paint (MMEDs119-18)

This course will introduce you to different ways of using coloured and patterned papers to create a composition as you might do with paint. The focus will be on using both abstract and representational designs based on found and composed shapes. The use of coloured patterned papers is a great way to expand your colour awareness and has been used for over a century to plan colour schemes for paintings. The projects will be small works of art in themselves but can also be used as ideas or studies for paintings. Suitable for beginners.

Fabric Bricolage (MMEDs118-18)

In the arts, “bricolage" refers to the "construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available”. In this course, students will learn techniques ranging from basic handweaving to fabric manipulation through origami folding methods. Processes will include painterly considerations and integration of yarn and threads, to adaptable tessellations using the modular forms formed from fabric manipulation. Participants will use a range of methods to produce unique compositions in a mixed media format. Each week will yield a sample or a sketch to illustrate the technique, form and aesthetic choices based on the demonstrations. The course will culminate with a series of pieces or a larger composition that will showcase each individual’s artistic sensibilities. Some craft experience is beneficial but not necessary.
