Mitt blikk mitt - mitt fjell

My gaze – my mountain

This is a workshop for school classes and arts and music schools, produced in collaboration with the North Norwegian Art Centre (NNKS) for the national Cultural Rucksack programme (Den kulturelle skolesekken). How can we use collage to create an interpretation and a personal expression? Which techniques can be used to do this? And what limits should we set? The children receive each their own package with photographs that they will use to create their own picture using the material the artist will bring with him, before gluing their picture onto cardboard.

Mitt blikk - min plass, mitt nabolag, min by

My gaze – my place, my neighbourhood, my city

Create a collage by using photographs and then form your own city.

 

This workshop begins with a brief introduction of photography in relation to perspective and composition, with examples from the artist’s own works, before we take a look at the cubist art movement. How can we use collage to create an interpretation and a personal expression? Which techniques can be used to do this? And what limits should we set? The children receive each their own package with photographs that they will use to create their own picture using the material the artist will bring with him, before gluing their picture onto cardboard. Each student decides the size, number of works, and composition.

 

Did you make a neighbourhood? a district? Can they be joined together to form a city?
