Digital collage offers the contemporary photographer a way to create a very personal style, rich in imagery and meaning that mirrors the modern experience. In this online course, students may use their personal archive of photographic material, found images and anything that can be scanned or photographed, and learn how to create a visual juxtaposition of ideas and themes as well as fuse, scan and offset diverse materials. Through in-class lectures focusing on collage techniques, fundamentals of composition, and the history of collage, each student is encouraged to develop an idiosyncratic approach to this genre, a signature style which showcases a sensibility of their own. This course is limited to 12 students.

Note: Adobe Photoshop is required for this course.

Prerequisite: Students must be familiar with Adobe Photoshop.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.

Please collect as much visual material as you can. You can never have too much! Books, magazines, letters, documents, photographs, stamps, paintings, etc. are all useful. They will need to be digitalized at some point, either with a scanner or camera. Have some images that can be used as backgrounds and others that have content which can be selected. For an general introduction to collage, please read my article on the ICP website, Collage and the Photographic Imagination:
