Collage Class at the Takoma Park Community Center


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.


Session 1: Tuesdays, 11:00AM – 2:00 PM, January 10 – February 14, 2017

This six week session of Collage will explore the tertiary palettes, focusing on temperature contrast and key; students will explore using the photograph as an organizing principle and learn to do B/W acrylic transfers.

Session 2: Tuesdays, 11:00AM – 2:00 PM, March 7 – April 18, 2017

This six week session of Collage will explore the complementary palette, focusing on value contrast and key; students will explore using spirals and concentric circles the organizing principle and create altered papers with interference paints.
