Exploring Design with Paper Collage o.l.v. Linda Colsh (USA/BE)

Using printed and painted papers, this design class presents value as the key to understanding composition and design. Students will complete a variety of exercises using simple, easy paper collage techniques to explore the elements of design. All of the ideas and principles learned in working with paper images can be applied at home to working with cloth. For those who have digital cameras and home computers with printers, information can be given about ways to use the collages made in class on fabric.
