Dare County Arts Council Presents Collage Workshop

Posted By on March 5, 2014

The Dare County Arts Council is hosting a workshop focusing on the art of collage this month in Manteo.

Dare County Arts Council is pleased to present a new workshop with artist Greg Orloff on Saturday, March 15th from 9am – 4pm.

This class offers participants a special opportunity to learn and implement techniques of creating collage art from any available 2-D resource at hand. Collage art is a method of recombining imagery, text and or graphics from magazines.

Participants will learn how to create a unified composition through layering, color addition, aging, burning, etc. to achieve a finished collage. The goal of this workshop is not simple cut and paste, but to understand the process of creating an engaging, narrative collage. Although techniques will build on processes learned in his previous workshop, there are no prerequisites and is open to all skill levels – beginner to advanced.

Greg Orloff is an artist whose interest lies in working with pre-existing materials to create two and three-dimensional works. Whether gathering objects from the muck of a swamp, a junkyard, or images from a coffeehouse magazine, the process of selecting, altering and designing with re-purposed materials is similar. A graduate from the University of Missouri Greg is currently program assistant at Pocosin Arts in Columbia, NC, where he is also working on a new body of his own work while assisting with various programs.

The cost of the workshop is $75 for DCAC members, or $85 for nonmembers, and it will take place in the newly renovated upstairs workspace, located at 300 Queen Elizabeth Avenue in downtown Manteo. Preregistration is required and a supply list will be provided upon registration. Teacher certification renewal credit is available. 

Please call Dare County Arts Council for more information or to register at (252) 473-5558.
