Collage frees you up from the ‘rules’ of representational drawing or painting and allows you to explore a more personal artistic language. It is a compositional technique that combines found images, printed text or textured surfaces – often alongside painted or hand-drawn elements – to create an image that can be abstract, expressive and sometimes contain social commentary. Modern collage techniques can be traced back to the Cubists Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, who regularly incorporated found elements from the ‘real world’ in their paintings, sculptures (assemblages) and drawings as they explored multiple viewpoints in response to scientific discoveries that changed our understanding of space, time and matter in the early 20th century. Flex your artistic muscles with creative exercises and develop your own compositions guided by professional artist Sue Ford.
