Collage Explorations Workshop, with Peggy Pfenninger
October 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm PDT
This event is online only, you'll receive a link by email.
Join us for the next Siren Nation Speaks on October 10, a hands-on workshop in “Collage Explorations.”
Do you love collage but aren’t sure how to get started? Artist and designer Peggy Pfenninger will teach you several different ways to approach collage, from spontaneous assemblage to planned-out “linear” collages. No experience is needed, and the workshop is open to all ages.
Peggy Pfenninger spends her time running a graphic design/print business and creating unique pieces of art. Because she loves to work in many different media, the title “multimedia artist” suits her best. Whether dreaming up a new collage, painting, or snapping photos, she is always exploring color, texture, and energy. Peggy is a joyous, dedicated member of the Oregon art community and looks forward to again hosting collage workshops in her NE Portland home. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram.
Peggy will lead us through the three fun collage exercises listed below.
Exercise 1: Non-Committal Collages
Create 4 quick collages from 9 random bits of ephemera. No glue or scissors needed. If you would like to capture your collages, please have a camera or smartphone handy.
Exercise 2: Paper Doodling with Kirigami – Cut Paper Snowflakes
Remember cutting snowflakes when you were a kid? We’ll cut snowflakes to create interesting shapes to make doodle collages with. What’s a doodle collage? It’s a collage created spontaneously. Just as if you were doodling with a pen, except your tools are paper, scissors, and a glue stick.
Exercise 3: Linear Collage from Magazine Pages
With this exercise, we’ll use magazines to create one or two different types of collages. A linear collage is one with forethought and direction. Very different from the first two exercises. Don’t worry, you got this!
What you’ll need:
You’ll just need a few basic supplies to make these collages. Please register on Eventbrite to get the supply list.
