Mixed Media Collage

Jan 3 - 21, 2022

9AM – 5PM

Concept

Join this exciting January intensive workshop to merge photography, painting, collage and digital fabrication technologies. We explore contemporary examples of layered mixed media work and delve into formal as well as technical approaches for combining diverse imagery to create a unique visual language. The class combines structured projects with individually-directed works, one-on-one critiques with the instructor, and group feedback. In addition to working in analog collage and painting processes, students use vector drawings and digital images to create shapes, stencils and image transfers with CNC, laser cutting and digital printing on various substrates. The workshop takes place in the wood loft and makes use of the photography/new media labs as well as the FabLab so that students can explore many possibilities for making dynamic and multilayered imagery.

The instructor will be present from 9AM – 12PM each day and students will work independently in the afternoons. Students will have additional access to the Digital Fabrication and Photography & New Media studios during monitor hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9PM.

David Hornung

Tuition $695
Code D16W01-22

This second installment of David Hornung’s color class is for students who have taken his first workshop and would like to go deeper. In Color 2 we explore the development of color interrelationships through a variety of mixing strategies and conduct color research into natural and manufactured sources. We also examine specific color applications like progression and the illusion of transparency and study the way color works with shape to create spatial hierarchy in a two-dimensional image. As with the previous class, meetings are on alternate days (MWF) which allows ample time to complete assignments. The materials list is identical to that of Color 1, linked below. The prerequisite for this workshop is David Hornung's class, Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, click here for details.
