Course Description

Focusing only on imperfect papers and book parts from the past, explore the notion of creating beautiful collage work using very few supplies.

Minimal Collage with Leslie Rottner

No marks, no paint, just paper. Clear the clutter to create space, both mentally and physically, and allow the papers to speak for themselves.

Creating a collage that is strong enough to stand on it’s own encourages thoughtful placement knowing it won’t be covered up.

Creating a practice of being present in the moment and working with papers that have their own story to tell is both calming and stimulating.

Enjoy creating more with less.
