Welcome to Collage-Lab

 

ANNOUNCING THE 2023 COLLAGE-LAB MASTER CLASSES

  • Added Dimension – begins week of January 8, 2023

Not assemblage, but experimenting with adding key 3-D elements to collage for dramatic effects. This 6-week Master Class on Zoom features a lot of hands-on work with an added dimension.

  • Sculptural Encaustic – begins week of February 19, 2023

Take your encaustic work to another dimension, as we put wax on found objects and build up our own shapes. Basic encaustic knowledge is required. Simple encaustic wax set-up will deliver astonishing sculptural works in this 6-week Zoom Master Class.

  • Color & Composition – begins week of May 14, 2023

A deep dive into how color can affect all areas of your composition. Color is so very powerful in our work and we will focus on a variety of ways to embrace its potential in this 6-week Zoom Master Class.

  • Booking It – begins week of July 9, 2023

Not collages made of books, but books made for collage. We will explore and create our own collage journals, books, zines, and scrolls in this 6-week Zoom Master Class.

  • Scaling Up – begins week of September 3, 2023

Using small pieces as inspiration, we will discover ways to scale up in size and impact. Grow your practice as you grow the size and scale of your work in this 6-week Zoom Master Class.

  • Less is More – begins week of November 12, 2023

Minimalism can be hard. Learn tips for making the most out of carefully selected elements and the importance of white space in this 6-week Zoom Master Class.

ALL MASTER CLASSES TAKE PLACE LIVE ON ZOOM, 2-3 HOURS A WEEK FOR 6 WEEKS AND YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS TO RECORDINGS AND RESOURCES FOR 12 MONTHS.

PAY IT FORWARD OPTION

I know that not everyone has the ability to take online classes in the current economy. Most of my course offerings are already priced low, but I really want to make collage more accessible to everyone. I’ve given over $2,500 in scholarships in 2022 so far! MANY THANKS TO THE DOUG + LAURIE KANYER ART COLLECTION FOR UNDERWRITING 4 FULL SCHOLARSHIPS IN 2022!

If you are able, please consider a gift to the Collage Lab Scholarship Fund. Contribute any amount and I will personally match your gift in awarding scholarships, so a $50 contribution will mean $100 in scholarship funds! Click HERE.
