How (and where) to practice collage art

How (and where) to practice collage art

A single of my key beliefs about collage artwork is that it is not a talent, but a skill. This means that the far more you do it, the better you get. But how do you practice collage, and wherever can you discover physical exercises to help you?

Right before I get into the methods I offer to persuade folks to make, I want to mention individuals that I have uncovered or listened to about.

To start with, there are artwork groups. There are groups that you can obtain in particular person in your local artwork communities, or teams these types of as Fb Teams, which can be great for getting structured troubles. There are so many Fb teams for all different forms of arts so you have to do your analysis to see what is the appropriate for you. You also have to be picky. If you come to feel that it is not the proper suit, you have to have to be proactive about reducing your ties and retaining on with your search.

Next, there are other social media internet sites, like Instagram for example, exactly where people today will share what issues they are operating on. The moment you know what some of people are, you can adhere to them. For instance, I have viewed lots of posts on #ICAD or #icad, which is the “index card a day” obstacle for 30 times. You can observe that hashtag to learn what the latest prompts are and then use them as inspirations for the sorts of collages you make.

If you know of far more locations to come across exercise, do allow me know in the remarks, make sure you. I’d like to understand about far more.

What about the means I supply?

The most preferred kinds are the Collage Weekly Planners, which are gluebooks that have an assignment printed on the website page. You have house on the reverse page to create your collage. You have 52 months really worth of collages to continue to keep you a good deal busy! The excellent issue is that you can get the job done at your have tempo. 

If you really do not want to get a entire reserve and just want the workout routines so that you can do collage in your very own gluebook, you can buy just the assignments.

What about a free of charge model? In the Collage Artwork Collective, there is a group wherever some others function on assignments. A new assignment is posted every week, which you can see and print out if you would like.

I give YouTube films that support newbies with collage. I have received a complete playlist that may be handy if you like understanding from video clips.

Finally, I give an on the internet program that structured for newcomers or those people who have carried out collage artwork but are not self-assured in their work. You can discover far more details about it below. The course is accessible for everyday living and is component of the Collage Art Collective.

Whatsoever you pick out to do, I hope you will discover chances to be resourceful with collage artwork. The a lot more you practice, the far better you will get!
