(107) Collage to Tapestry Cartoon
Discover how collage can generate spontaneous designs for tapestry. Students will respond to various prompts to make quick and fun collages from a variety of papers. They will investigate the importance of contrast and value in good design and discover how to translate a collage’s colors, textures and lines into a weave-able cartoon for tapestry. The use of photographs as aids to design will also be discussed. Students will do hands-on design work and be ready to weave when they return home.
