CREATIVE COLLAGE: MATISSE, KRASNER, AND POLLOCK
Discover innovative collages by three modern masters. Then tour the studio where Pollock and Krasner made abstract expressionist art. While Pollock is best known for his drip painting technique, this program will present his experimental abstract collages. We’ll explore Krasner’s monumental collages made by ripping, cutting, and gluing her former works to create new compositions, as well as the cut-outs of Matisse who was an inspiration to Krasner. Joyce will then demonstrate collage techniques as participants work alongside each other on Zoom. Have supplies on hand for your project: scissors, glue, a surface for your art such as paper or canvas, and collage materials such as colored papers, magazines, or fabric scraps.
