Collage: New Ways of Making Images


Thursday, April 8, 2021
1 – 3 pm
Zoom, Virtual Program

This program is at capacity. If you have questions or would like to receive advance notification about programs, please email

Learn several different collage techniques in this two-part virtual workshop taught by artist Sheryl Oppenheim. Drawing inspiration from innovative mid-century magazine design on view in the exhibition Modern Look: Photography and the American Magazine, participants will focus on using magazine images—especially, but not only, photographic images—transforming them through the use of unexpected cutting techniques. In addition, students will learn how best to glue their collages, along with principles of composition to consider when designing a collage. The sky is the limit (unless you put something above the sky, which you can do with collage)!

Participants should have access to a computer with a camera and Wi-Fi and will receive a Zoom link prior to the program date.

Please note that this is a two-session class. Ticket purchase is required and includes both sessions on April 8 & 15. All skill levels welcome.
