Thursdays, Nov. 17 – Dec. 8, 2022
Live Class Limit: 15
Monochromes immediately set themselves apart from the colourful crowd. They carry more weight, somehow demanding to be taken seriously — even with lighter subjects or themes. Less gush, more veritas. With the rainbow off the menu, collaging in monochrome puts the focus squarely on key concerns like values, narrative, composition, textures, point of view, materials… In other words, there’s still plenty to juggle! (Paradoxically, working in monochrome will strengthen your full colour work, honing important skills that don’t get as much attention when you’re coping with colour issues, too.)
Through his trademark blend of inspiring masterwork examples, lively discussion and lots of fun and challenging hands-on exercises, Kal will have you making monochrome collages that are singularly compelling!
Working from the comfort of your own home/studio, you’ll connect with fellow collagers through group discussions and real-time exercises during each class, as well as working on a weekly project on your own time between classes.
We will be on the easy-to-use Zoom online meeting platform. Students love my Art History slide shows, and Zoom really shines for this: you get a really good look at the work!
The course is accompanied by a private Facebook Group where you can upload your finished or in-progress homework, plus see and comment on your fellow classmates’ work. It’s a lively, collegial safe space to share your work, and I offer comments on all work posted.
Recordings of live sessions are made available to all participants, so if you can't make the live time slot, you can watch it later.
Video-only Version: $160
The only difference is that you don't join us for the live Zoom class, but rather watch the video replay, which I make available to all enrolled students shortly after each class. You're able to join the private Facebook group (for sharing, support and feedback with/from your fellow students as well as me) and you can email me one or two questions a week to be addressed during class if desired.
Cost: $160 for 4 live classes,
$132 for video-only version
