Collage is the art of design to express a theme or idea, be it momentos from a trip or a life, a design of geometrics, to an explosion of colors depicting natural objects, this class is for you. You will learn to design and arrange your colors and objects on a canvas to best show off your personal thoughts, ideas or momentos. We will use colored papers of all types and a variety of objects that you bring with you.

If you love to arrange things, but are not interested in drawing, this class is for you. If you love to draw, you are encouraged to use your drawing skills in a new way. Either way, you will have fun and learn !
