What you'll learn in this collage class:

Please join me in this fun and unique collaging class. You will learn how to use an assemblage of different forms (clippings from books, magazines, etc.) to create a new whole image. I will teach you how to train your eye to recognize which images to combine together and how to see a variety of options for using a single image all in an exciting, balanced, and unique way. 

You will also learn different techniques for gluing and sealing your masterpiece. You may also choose to draw or sketch on your collage as a fun finishing touch!

Materials Needed to Fully Participate

  • Scissors
  • Glue - I like the clear Elmer's glue sticks to position the images and Mod Podge as a top coat
  • And something to put the collage on such as cardstock paper, wood panel, cardboard, etc. It can be difficult to get the paper to stick with the glue stick onto canvas so if you are using canvas it's best to attach the images with Mod Podge.
  • [Optional] Mini handheld squeegee 
  • [Optional] Fine tip marker to draw details

About the Instructor:

I have been teaching art as well as crafts at a private art school for 6+ years and have been a professional artist since 2001. I have also earned my master teaching credentials from the state of CA. My style is intuitive and free flowing which leaves room for individual student creativity and flexibility. My classes are a fun way to learn new skills and develop the independent intuition needed to keep the creative process alive for years to come. 

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

Students may cancel any time 48 hours or more before the class to receive a refund. Students canceling less than 48 hours before a class will receive a full credit towards rescheduling or purchasing a different class.

Ginger was fantastic! She made collaging super accessible for me as a beginner. She also ran great demos and easily answered all of our questions. She was extremely invested in giving us a positive experience and followed through in every way. I feel well-positioned to take up collaging as a hobby. Would 100% recommend this course as a fun activity for yourself or with family, if you are interested in a new hobby, or want to sharpen your skills.

Gina walked us through the basics of collage and she did a collage as we worked on ours to illustrate key things. I'm sure if the class had more experience that she would have adapted to that leve. But it was exactly what I was looking for.
