Session 2 on the Collage With Artist Made Papers was filled is more paper making and working on our landscape collages. Lots of fun making all sorts of papers to supplement the paste paper we made last session.
All of these papers were add to the palette of papers that were then available for creating. The collages we were creating were to be based on nature–land or seascape. The example I provided for the students I created to evoke landscapes.
We then started tearing the papers, leaving beautiful white edges and irregular shapes that created a lot of interest. Composing requires a lot of arranging and playing with the paper in order to put together the piece. Here is the time that we find that we “get in the zone” and play! These creative decisions can take you in many directions.
