Collage Lab: Experiments, Investigations, and Exploratory Projects Cover

 

Staff Pick

Sometimes we need a little help getting started in a new craft, and that's why I recommend this title to anyone who feels intimidated about collage. Using the scientific method, Bee Shay introduces techniques for first-time collagers. You get an objective, list of materials, instructions, and a summary that provides extra tips or variations. With 52 experiments, Collage Lab will help you master the art of collage.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Collage Lab offers artists and crafters a fun and experimental approach to making art. The book is organized into 52 different labs which may, but don't need to be, explored on a weekly basis. The labs can be worked in any order, so that readers can flip around to learn a new mixed-media technique or be inspired by a particular collage theme or application. The underlying message of this book is that artists can and should learn and gain expertise through experimentation and play. There is no right or wrong result for a given exercise, yet readers will gain skills and confidence in collage techniques, allowing them to take their work to a new level.

 

Collage Lab is illustrated with brilliant full-color images and multiple examples of each exercise, offers a visual, non-linear approach to learning art techniques, and reinforces a fun and fearless approach to making art.

Synopsis:

This book is potentially the first in a new series which will provide the reader with solid techniques and ideas for unique applications, each book covering a popular craft subject area, all presented in a appealing visual package organized into 52 units, which may, but don't need to be explored on a weekly basis. The Lab series offers artists and crafters a new type of format. While the book exposes readers to very hands-on techniques and solid project ideas, the approach is fun and experimental. Readers don't need to work through the book in order. Rather, they can flip around to learn something new or be inspired. The underlying message of the book is to learn and gain expertise through experimentation and play. There is no right or wrong result, yet, the reader gains skills and confidence in their medium to take their work to a new level.
