Mending the Museum: Collage Across Space and Time with kaya joan

Join artist kaya joan in “Collage Across Space and Time”. This workshop encourages storytelling through the art of collage. Participants will be provided a diverse range of materials to work with, creating collages that explore what futurity means to them. Participants will learn the art of cutting and pasting to bring their imaginative visions to life, discovering how the elements of design can support and enhance their narratives as they experiment with composition, color, texture, and shape. They will be encouraged to envision the future and consider the stories they feel are vital to share, imagining their collage on display in the museum a century from now, leaving a lasting impact on future generations. Through collaborative discussions and creative exercises, this workshop provides a safe and inclusive space for participants to express their unique perspectives and voices.
