About This Class

Join artist and educator Sarah Shaw for a 40-minute class that covers beginning collage techniques, exploring imagery of simple landscapes. Sarah has been creating both paper and mixed-media collages for a decade, and is very happy to share some tips and techniques to help you "paint with scissors" and create some dynamic works of art!

In this class, you will learn how to choose proper materials for your project, and watch demos of four different techniques for collaging with paper. These lessons will encourage you to think visually—observing elements in your photo as lines and shapes, rather than mountains, trees and rocks. This class is ideal for beginners and those with limited experience collaging, but all are welcome to join.

Collage can be relaxing, meditative and addicting. This might be your first try at collage, but it probably won’t be your last!
