The Art of Collage
ARI Learning by Carly Filewich Inclusive & Social!
In this 6 week class we will explore many ways to use collage as an art form. This class is half Art History, half applied practice.
Collage is an older art form than you think! Japanese artists were sticking paper onto silk as early as the 1100's and in Victorian England collage Valentines were all the rage. Join me, Yvonne, in exploring historical collage and current collage. We will try new techniques and discuss what constitutes a collage in today's art world. Week 1: Historical exploration of Japanese and early European collages and we get to start out with Chigiri-e. We use the materials of construction paper,...
Students will learn about the history of the art technique known as Collage. They will explore the ways it shows up in fine and folk art and experiment with these techniques. They will also learn about the ways Collage has been used to make observations and comments on society. *This course directly relates to B.C.

Yvonne, B.Mus McGill University, is an interdisciplinary artist with a wide range of interests. After a minor concentration in Art History, I continue to be fascinated by the subject and exploration into how we have changed art over the centuries. This includes fashion! I like to upcycle old clothing, create collage and assemblage sculpture, create electronic music and I work a lot with recycled materials and papercrafts. As a homeschooling mom of an ND learner, I've developed project based learning opportunities that combine curricular expectations with specific interests. I am of Metis and European heritage and enjoy exploring history and current art trends in my culture as well. Learner Led project based learning is where we connect with learners and inspire them to continue in their learning journey.
Homework OfferedLearners will work on their projects inside and outside of class.
