Collage/Collage Drawing Assignment

For this assignment students were to choose an image of an interior or exterior space out of a magazine or newspaper and then create a torn/cut paper collage based on that image. Next, on another sheet of paper students used a low end transfer technique to collage one or two pieces of their original image photographically onto the page. Finally, each students task was to draw in the surrounding areas by using the collage they had created as a source.

Through this multiple step process students transformed a found image into their own piece that partially combines the original source with a twice abstracted version of that same source. The final products tend to evolve into an unexpected twist of the original image.
