Collage into Mixed Media (Easter Course)

  • 25 hours
  • 5 days


This practical five-day course will introduce collage as a way of thinking and encourage learning through making.

You'll learn new techniques and realise the potential of collage through workshops and studio time.

You'll experiment with mixed media (paint, drawing, 3D etc.), explore the varied techniques of collage, and challenge the boundaries of the medium.

You'll also learn about the history of collage and its contemporary importance, focusing on Slade alumni for inspiration.

The course runs from 10am to 4pm over five days. 

This course is run by the Slade School of Fine Art at UCL.

Course content and structure

Each morning will start with a brief talk and a practical workshop. You'll spend the afternoons in studio development, discussions and tutorials.

The focus of each day will be:

  • Day 1: Transforming found images and perhaps your own, through the process of collage to make a new image.
  • Day 2: Using collage as part of a process leading to drawing and painting.
  • Day 3: Using collage as part of a process leading to sculpture/installation and photography.
  • Days 4 and 5: Developing concepts and techniques covered in the first three days to make a final work.
