‘A Sense of Place’ Photo Collage

This workshop naturally falls into 2 sections.

The first section of this mainly consists of the participants coming up with their idea for their photo collage and sketching this down.

 

In the second section I give the participants a photo shop demonstration. Participants then create their photo collage.

This can either be created by cutting out and sticking down images or by using photo shop.

I facilitated this workshop at the following event :

At the beginning of this workshop participants are given a PhotoShop demonstration focusing on how I create my artworks. Participants are then encouraged to create their own postcard sized photo collage. I encourage them to consider how they could layer up the images on their photo collage to help create their artwork.
