On April 30th, 2011, collage artist Megan Coyle will run her first ever collage workshop. It will take place at the Jasper Arts Center in Jasper, Indiana from 10:00am until 2:00pm. The workshop coincides with Coyle’s solo show on display for the month of May at the Krempp Gallery.
By attending the class, you’ll get an overview on the history of collage as an art form. Coyle will also share a collection of images by collage artists throughout history and review several different paper collage techniques.
“I like working with collage because it’s such a flexible medium. It gives you the ability to easily add layers and pull away previous layers,“ Coyle explains. Her passion for the medium is evident when you speak to her about her work.
Coyle’s collages look a lot like paintings, although once you step closer to one of these creations, you’ll notice they were constructed from fragments of paper. She calls her technique “painting with paper” – where she manipulates magazine strips in such a way that they mimic the brushstrokes in a painting.
Whether you’re new to collage or have been dabbling in it for years, you’ll enjoy hearing what Coyle has to say about the medium. Workshop attendees will have an opportunity to construct several of their own small collages, including a collage that uses Coyle’s “painting with paper” technique. So bring your creativity and a bag lunch to spend the afternoon collaging with D.C. area artist Megan Coyle.
Workshop costs $25 per person. You can register through the Jasper Arts Center.
