Collage – A new small group: Come and cut and paste together

Come and enjoy choosing images and creating a collage

This is an opportunity for creative play and self-exploration using collage. We work quietly at our own pace.

Scissors, glue sticks, paper and images all available – but bring your own if you wish.

Calendars are especially lovely. Any magazines you bring should be taken away or recycled, or have images and words clipped for others.

(We have limited storage space).

Please RSVP to Mary and Laurie.

Supported by UCV’s Arts Committee.

More about collage:

Definition:

collage (n.)

form of abstract art in which photos, newspaper clippings, found objects, etc., are glued onto a surface, 1919 (Wyndham Lewis), from French collage “a pasting,” from Old French coller “to glue,” from Greek kolla “glue,” a word of uncertain origin, perhaps Pre-Greek.

Some formats and approaches

SoulCollage(R) is a method for creating images on a 5″ x 8″ surface.

Artist Trading Cards are traded among people and are 2.5 x 3.5

Art Journal Collages

(Just google any of these phrases or “collage fine art” to find interesting information. You’ll find myriad videos on youtube as well.)

We hope a group will form to share the coordination of these gatherings on a monthly basis (or even more frequently). This involves coming early and staying late to set-up and cleanup; welcoming newcomers and putting notices in UCV events, order of service and bulletin boards.

These gatherings are inspired by a program at the Unitarian Church of Montreal.
