Collage Class at the Takoma Park Community Center

buddy-critique-collage

January-April 2017

Offered through the Takoma Park Recreation Department, and now in its 12th year, Collage is a great collective work environment for novices and artists alike. Part color theory class, part exposure to fresh ideas about composition, it is a workshop, a critique group, and a place to generate, wrestle with, and nurture, visual ideas.

Participants can either cycle through the sequential 2-year (10 session) curriculum and work with a wide range of mixed media methods, materials, aspects of color and approaches to design, or drop in to specific classes to focus on a particular palette or design topic.

Experience the remarkable possibilities of paper, paint, and found materials! This class is held in the Takoma Park Community Center at 7500 Maple Avenue.
