Basic Drawing: Collage Assignment
For this assignment students were to choose an image of an interior space out of a magazine or newspaper and then create a torn/cut paper collage based on that image. Next, on another sheet of paper students used a low end transfer technique to collage one or two pieces of their original image photographically onto the page. Finally, each students task was to draw in the surrounding areas by using the collage they had created as a source.
Through this multiple step process students transformed a found image into their own piece that partially combines the original source with a twice abstracted version of that same source. The final products tend to evolve into an unexpected twist of the original image as the students manipulated both the image into collage and then their collage into a drawing.
