Create a collaborative collage with a small group at CAFAM.
Collage: The Power of SelfCraft in America Center (8415 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048) Map it $110
This two-day workshop will be taught by self-declared "image junkie" and watercolorist Hidde Van Duym. The workshop will be a rare, intimate opportunity for a small group to come together and create a collaborative collage that will be installed at the Center upon completion. Van Duym’s work will be on view in an exhibition at the center from November 8th through January 4th, 2014. On the evening of the opening of his show, Van Duym will give a talk entitled, Rules of Seeing: an Overview of Collage, to launch the weekend celebration of the properties, process and meaning of collage. More information about that event and the exhibition is available here. Largely a self-taught artist, Van Duym worked with lithography, etching and welding before beginning to experiment with three-dimensional watercolor montage in the early 1980s. Van Duym’s exhibition, lecture and workshop will ponder the nature of collage as an expressive medium with distinct characteristics. Van Duym will guide the group to consider the hidden connections that emerge when diverse materials are brought together to form a theme, story or design. Workshop participants are expected to bring their own ruler, bone folder, weights, scissors and/or knives, tweezers/tongs, adhesives, cutting mats & brushes. There is a $110 fee which includes Sunday lunch.
