A call for participation to join the Collage Workshop given by Francois Perez from 23 to 27 March, 2014 at 6 to 9 pm.

Workshop takes place on 23, 24, 25, 26 and 27 March 2014 from 6 to 9 pm.

Workshop description:

In this workshop we will learn to create collages alone or mixed with other media, i.e. coloured pencils, felt pens, paint etc.... We will learn how to express an idea through the juxtaposition of the images we already have and how to place and surround them to create a work which will reflect our original vision and make an impact.

We will also learn how to be free from concept, but inwardly open to listen and be guided by the material to create new images that will seems to emerge by themselves, using the off cuts and recycling the material discarded in the first collages.

It is a playful but meditative experience.

The students are advised to collect some paper material that they love for reason of, texture, shape, colour. The careful choice of material is important as it will greatly influence our direction.

At the end the students will have the opportunity to exhibit and discuss their works."
