Letters & Scissors & Paste, Oh My! – Wednesdays in April

April 6 - April 27

Letters and Scissors and Paste, Oh My!
                                                                                                 with Mike Gold                                                                                                   Member Sponsored Workshop

This workshop series with Mike Gold focuses less on pen and ink and more on cutting and pasting. So, if you want to try something different, this might be just the thing for you as we focus on building cut paper and collage lettering-based compositions.

We will look at some of the principles and ideas that guided Picasso, Matisse and others to create contemporary calligraphic art. Collage was key to both Picasso and Matisse in developing their work and modernist visual vocabulary and we will use it here, too. The work of master calligraphers Hans-Joachim Burgert and Myrlin von Glahn will be also be examined and used as inspiration. Each of the exercises will explore non-traditional layout and design using letters as shapes, textures and design elements. Demonstrations and handouts will guide you through the work.

You will come away with:
– Four artworks that feature cut paper and collage (two of each).
– A better understanding of composition, layout and design.
– Knowledge of the supplies, tools and methods for creating letter-based cut paper and collage designs.
– Handouts that provide images and text that will provide reference post-workshop.
