In this studio class for creating collage-based works, students will work through various methods and techniques for cutting and applying images as well as composition and layout.

Students will have the unique privilege of working with materials donated from the incredible collection of the late artist Sara Pearce. Most materials provided but students are also encouraged to look for and bring to the class to use &/or share additional materials they like or that are especially fitting to their own projects. 

About Sara Pearce

The late, Sara Caswell-Pearce was a Cincinnati-based collage artist, printer and graphic designer who could not get enough paper. Old paper. Grungy paper. Peculiar paper. Paper retrieved from trash baskets and dumpsters. Paper spotted at book sales and flea markets. Paper unloaded by friends and strangers. Her passion was for finding antique images, and helping them tell a new story–via snarky greeting cards and complex, layered fine-art collages in which she combines antique and vintage materials with hand-painted and hand-printed backgrounds, and handmade paper. Her work is generally narrative, with a feminist slant. After an array of careers (public relations, libraries, restaurants, journalism) she became a full-time, professional artist.
