In this workshop participants will engage with the work of artists in New World Order to generate inventive and exciting narratives. This innovative four-day workshop will introduce participants to a wide range of collage and painting techniques used by Contemporary artists. They will experience how new technologies can merge with painting and collage.

Lead by artist Gregory Hodge students will develop a stop-motion animation, three dimensional collage dioramas and large scale painted collages. The exploration of collage will produce an understanding of pictorial space and how collage can be used to re-order that space to create dynamic narratives and storytelling.
