In this class we will explore the art of collage as a form of conversation between yourself and your culture.  Through creating collages and artist’s statements, we will develop core artistic and anthropological processes that generate personal revelations, cultural linkages, and discovery of our common stories.  The process begins with images that choose you, proceeds through communicating with the images to discover the story they are telling you, and concludes in a single collage or series of collages, an artist statement, and a group display, which we will explore to discover the communal story we share in common as we become collage elements ourselves.  The collages function as a nonlinear kind of thinking feedback that uses all your kinds of intelligence and form languages as a result of intentional participation in the beauty all around you, past, present, and future.
