Join Jacklyn on a shallow dive into the work of Hannah Hoch. In this workshop participants will learn a little bit of history while creating beautiful, personal, one-of-a-kind collages with mixed media. You will learn about Dada history and how Hannah Hoch came to collage her personal and political views, and how art was evolving all over the world in the 1920’s. You will take inspiration from her, and other collage artists to make your own pieces of art. You will practice collaging with some directed exercises using clippings from magazines and newspapers, prints of your own photography (or favorite photos you have), and markers. You will then create a theme or message for a larger form piece and spend the rest of the time working to complete that project. You don’t need any specific skills for this class, other than a curiosity about history and a willingness to try a new form of art (or dive deeper into one you already love!). Hannah Hoch used her collaging to say something and to show her views during an important time in history. Jacklyn’s hope for this workshop is that will find a way to express yourself through this form of storytelling and be able to practice it at home.
Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
