Fantastical or serious, personal or political, the art of collage is a popular art technique accessible to beginner and professional alike

The Dadaists were the first serious artists to fully explore the technique of collage. Dada was an art movement that came into being after and as a response to the First World War in Europe. The techniques adopted by the collage artists gave expression to a new way of looking at and interpreting the world.

Hannah Hoch was a female Dada artist renowned for her collage art innovations. Her work was highly original, political, and intellectual, skillfully merging feminist ideas with the overall Dadaist aesthetic.

Students in this workshop will be given a foundation in the elements and principles of design (color, composition, perspective, etc.) They will also learn about the Dadaist art movement and its place in the social structure of the time. Students will be creating their own journals of collage art pieces.
