Concepts in Collage


Gerald Brommer's Theories

Gerald Brommer believes that collage design is based on basic design principles. In this studio course, you will work to learn and practice the designs and concepts that he made famous with his outstanding watercolors and pastels. Over the course of 9 weeks, you will talk about, demonstrate and work with Mr. Brommer's theories, putting them into practice.  Throughout the class, emphasis will remain on the elements and principles of design and their reasonable application into your artwork.  You will also spend time working with a variety of design formats as you work through how to apply Mr. Brommer's theories into a variety of mediums that demonstrate your artistic expression.


The Class will meet in 3 different phases, providing multiple opportunities to understand and apply Brommer's principles, as well as opportunities to apply them beyond collage, to your favorite medium.  

Phase I will meet on Tuesdays, April 23-May 7, 2019.

 Phase II will meet Tuesdays, May 14-May 28.  

Phase III will meet Tuesdays,June 3-17. All classes run from 1:00-3:00 PM.
