Collage within a picture

Who doesn’t like making a collage?  It’s creative, expressive and you get to experiment.  Creating a Digital Collage with a Tablet I & II teaches students how collages started, in the analog world before computers, and how they made the jump to the digital world.  Students learn about different types of collages and experiment with creating them using a variety of pictures of bands, musicians, portraits of musicians, etc.  The different types of collages students will be introduced to are:

  1. Grid Collages
  2. Classic Collages
  3. A collection of pictures with a theme
  4. A collage within a picture
  5. Hockney Collages
  6. Abstract/Surreal Collages


Creating a Digital Collage with a Tablet I – is about how to use the tablet and the collage app.  The students will then learn the basics by using pictures to put together different types of collages, adding text, stickers, and backgrounds.  The second half of the course shows students how to edit, crop, cut, and duplicate photos to make more interesting and outrageous collages.
