Get your creative flow moving with this fun and easy art activity where you’ll learn some great tips and tricks about collaging and create your own masterpiece. Choose any theme you’d like! Animals, friends, nature, social issues, or no theme at all. It’s up to you! A list of suggested supplies that you might find at home are listed below. The deadline for supply kits has passed but if you have access to some of the supplies at home please join us for this workshop! For more information please email RSVP@womenscentrecalgary.org.
This workshop will be held online via Zoom and is open to women-identifying individuals only.
- Magazines: try to find ones with a low gloss finish, as this will work best for sticking with the glue and your paper/board. But any magazine will do!
- Newspapers: this type of paper will stick the best with your glue.
- Old/new camera photos or polaroid photos.
- CD covers: collage is a great excuse to pull out any unwanted CD’s and cut out some interesting images from the CD cover sleeves.
- Paperback books: the book pages and covers can be a nice added detail to a collage.
- Printed pictures.
- Pair of scissors: If you plan to have a really detailed collage that may require smaller pieces to cut out, consider a small pair of scissors.
- Glue sticks or paste: glue sticks or paste will work best for paper collaging. For heavier elements, you may need stronger glue such as decoupage medium.
- Tweezers: these may help with gluing smaller pieces onto a collage.
- Background: thicker paper, cardstock, multimedia paper or canvas. Any thick type of paper will be great for collaging, as it will need to hold the weight of the pictures. Or you can start collaging on a plain piece of paper and when finished can glue the collage to a thicker paper or cardboard.
- You can also choose to incorporate different mediums into the collage, such as water colour, oil paints, sharpies, pencil crayons.
- Container or box to begin collecting materials you find before the workshop to use in your collage. The box can be a safe spot to keep them organized and to have ready for the workshop.
- Decoupage Glue: Once complete, if you wish to seal your collage so the images will hold together longer consider sealing it with decoupage glue.
