About This Class

If you know how to use scissors, you can make a collage… actually even if all you can do is tear paper, you can make a collage. But mastering the little details and thinking through each element can make turn your project into a polished work of art.


Our class project will be based on a one-word (or phrase) suggestion to get the creativity flowing and I'll guide you at each step to make a beautiful, cohesive collage!

Collage is an amazing medium in its own right, but it can also be a great practice for sharpening (pun somewhat intended) your skills in other areas, like graphic design, as you brainstorm the most effective way to convey your message visually.

The best part is you don't need much to get started. I'll show you some of my favorite tools, tricks, and ways of seeing that elevate a collage from pre-school project to high art.

Let’s dive deep and make something really special!

My happiest place is tinkering in the studio. The smell of paint. All the textures of different materials. The satisfaction of trying something new, even (especially) when it doesn’t work. My sketchbook takes the form of a million scraps of paper with more messy notes to myself than actual sketches. In life and in my work, I’m constantly seeking organization, simplicity and order then letting it all go in favor of curiosity and play.
