Teaching Collage to NoCa Members

In October 2016, I gave a short collage workshop as part of the October NoCa (North Cambridge Arts) meeting. The focus of the workshop was creating collages based on an image (a photo, a painting, or even a dream) that members could provide themselves. I showed examples from my own work, which is often inspired by photos (my own and others), offered a few pointers on putting together a collage, and provided a lot of materials: small canvas boards, scissors, glue sticks, old magazines, brochures, and decorative papers. Participants had just one hour. As is usual at NoCa workshops, they became engrossed in their work and produced some interesting products.
