Mixed Media: Collage Workshop (8 years 12 years)
This is a 1 day workshop for the children of the age group of 8 years to 12 years that will span for 2 hours i.e. 11AM to 1PM, going to be held on 5-June-2018. This workshop aims to bring your art and illustrations to life with the power of colours.
PAPER COLLAGE is a technique where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms with textured materials & colored papers creating a new whole! Collage is not just limited to a paper mosaic art but a lot more than that including marbles, stones, camera reel, wool thread and other different materials.
Collection and usage of the materials of varied textures, colors and patterns develop the sensibility in children to respond aptly and sensitively to their milieu. This ultimately help them see more than just a building and make them think that there is much more beyond the basic structure they have been seeing, that there is a complex relationships of rough, smooth, and shiny surfaces. They may then be able to further imply and relate this imagination in other things as well like a tree which has a relationship of textures; the rough indented bark and the hard branches contrasting with the smooth or soft leaves.
Collage making teaches a child to observe and see beauty in ordinary things and to develop imagination by thinking of the ways and possibilities of using simple materials for the expression of art. Selection of material for collage not only excites children but also helps them to make their own independent choices.
Hence this workshop will trace the same path of exploring imagination and creativity which will help children to develop decision making and instil patience. Children will be allowed to open the creative window of their mind and make the art using the paper abstracts, material bought by them and the material provided to them at the venue without using any reference and following their own thoughts. Also it will make this complex element of colors very easy to tackle. The effective usage of colors will enhance their beauty of their thoughts.
Finally they will witness the magic of creation of masterpieces simply with the help of random materials. They will also be allowed and taught to present the work they have created which will help them in developing a sense of presentation as well.
