Workshop Overview

In the spirit of environmental sustainability, in this workshop participants will explore using found, salvaged and reclaimed materials to develop a series of inventive collages. From renewable natural materials such as fallen leaves, through repurposed manmade materials such as packaging, mail and litter, participants will generate works with a high impact and low environmental footprint. By challenging oneself to utilize particular materials typically unfamiliar as an art supply, participants are offered the opportunity to create works that they otherwise would not have predetermined. This opens new creative avenues and inspires conversation around environmental stewardship and our role as artists.
