VPAS 673 Visual Arts for the Classroom: Collage + Assemblage- A Universal Framework for Communication

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Children and young adults has grown up in a media-drenched environment, full of appropriation. It is second nature to young people to create and curate personal collections of these images. Collage and assemblage as an art practice seeks to recontextualize that collective imagery to be presented in thoughtful and communicative ways. In this course, educators will learn to create collages and assemblages that communicate a focused message. We will explore the ways in which collage and assemblage has been used across cultures and by various artists. We will discuss the environmental and socioeconomic benefits to the art form, using recycled, salvaged, and personal imagery and artifacts to create works of art. Educators will come away with a deep appreciation for meaning in everyday objects and materials for artistic expression.
