THE ART OF COLLAGE in the Art Nest at The Wassaic Project

Wassaic Project is now offering free weekly drop-in art activities for k-12 youth and their families at the Art Nest! The Art Nest is a free space where kids of all ages can do individual and collaborative art projects, build creative skills, and engage with contemporary art. Wassaic Project staff will be on hand to supervise projects, but children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Each month the Art Nest will have a variety of projects based around different artistic media inspired by Wassaic Artists in Residents. Art Nest participants are welcomed to choose from an array of projects and are perfect for parent child creative teams.

Collage is a very accessible art form that is integrated into a variety of contemporary artistic practices. This month will feature a variety of collage projects to choose from. We will feature a community project that explores the many shades and tones of colors through making a large, collective color wheel. Feel free to bring anything from home to add to it, including your discarded items. We will also have a variety of magazines and colored papers that can be used. We will also make tile mosaics that can easily hang on a wall, as well as a project where you can envision yourself as a robot using all things metallic. Lastly, we will have all the materials to make small lanterns that glow. Add your own unique style and collaged technique.
