SU 2013 – Collage II: Text and Image

This course focuses on a variety of collage and monoprint/type techniques, their applications, and the conceptual implications of the generation of new work through appropriated images. Projects investigate the editorial hand, in which the artist's voice emerges through the manipulation of the marks of others, through the lens of the musical genres of the remix, the mash-up, the cover, and the sample. Demonstrations cover acrylic media and blending marker transfer, stencil-making, and other collage techniques. Students are encouraged to explore the formal and conceptual possibilities opened by these techniques, and apply them to their own artistic interests.

In response to the current COVID-19 situation, we require that all persons continue to wear masks at all times when in the Root Division space. For the safety of our students, artists, and extended community, we also require all students to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or same-day negative test results) for entry to classes held indoors at Root Division.

You may bring a physical copy of your vaccination card or via digital download through the State of California Digital Vaccine Record Portal here. (You may also provide a negative test result taken before each class session. Please contact us with any questions about the types of test results accepted.)

We ask this as a show of community care and a move towards continued safety while gathering in-person.
