Summer Academy Collage Project

In this short project, students learn the basic rules of one point perspective and experiment with collage and assemblage techniques to depict three dimensional space in two dimensions. After mining recycled magazines for shapes, colors, textures, patterns and elemental objects, students use these materials with perspective sketches they have drawn to make compositions that illustrate inventive new spaces. The collages often include scale figures that bring depth and energy to the two-dimensional constructions.
