“Collage” was originally a French word, derived from the word coller, meaning “to paste.”
Robert Rauschenberg didn’t exactly past this work together…
If you look in the dictionary you get:
col·lage (k-läzh, k-) n. 1. a. An artistic composition of materials and objects pasted over a surface, often with unifying lines and color. b. A work, such as a literary piece, composed of both borrowed and original material. 2. The art of creating such compositions. 3. An assemblage of diverse elements: a collage of conflicting memories. v. col·laged, col·lag·ing, col·lages
Collage has been around since the invention of paper (200 B.C.)according to Wikipedia.
So all this gets a bit closer to what we have in mind, but this definition is missing, well, it is missing soul!
Collage from the Soul sessions are spiritual but not religious in nature. Call on your intuition and imagination and add a dash of meditation and you are accessing your soul. Call out to your soul and listen for its answer. The collage from the soul materials will seem to jump off the tray and onto your canvas once you sink into your soul.
Where is Your Soul Calling You?
Whether you are actively seeking and exploring or just want to try something new, collage from the soul can help shift you into a new state of awareness and consciousness. Express your soul – there are no mistakes. You can’t go wrong because it is from your soul.
In the session you will find your hands moving over images, cutting out different words and scenes. You may not realize it but your hands are directly accessing your imagination and intuition – keeping you in the moment and out of your head and mind. As adults we don’t often get to live in the moment like that. Which is exactly why you should come and try some Collage from the Soul.
Discover your inner wisdom with this simple technique. You don’t need any art experience at all. For this session you really did learn all you need to know in kindergarten! Cut, paste and clean up after yourself. 😉 At the workshop, you will receive a stretched canvas (sizes vary), access to magazines and bling trays, tissue paper and glitter. All the materials are included in each Collage from the Soul workshop session fee.
