Collage Making workshop
Collage is an artistic concept primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. There could be numerous styles like collage in painting, in wood, photo montage, digital, decoupage, mosaic and many more. The style that we are referring to is more of a mosaic style which creates an impressionist image of an actual photograph, a live element or scenery, or anything the artist desires. There are no rules, because creativity is a personal expression. As an artist, the emotions that this technique evokes in me are that of a feeling of meditation and joy. It relieves you of the stresses of a day to day mundane routine, transporting you into a parallel world, just like any other art form or craft.
The technique is unique and not explored much beyond the usual photo montage routines. There is a lot one can explore using different media. As of now, we would start with just paper. Since the festive season is round the corner, we could conduct a workshop of making collage of gods and goddesses, or any other theme related to festivities. The possibilities are immense.
