Surreal collage allows artists to rapidly combine and juxtapose pre-existing elements, whether words or images, and transform them into new creations. The Surrealists saw collage as a means to enact what they considered the fundamental poetic activity of the unconscious mind. Both Surrealist poets and artists used collage techniques. Escape the real world and have fun bringing together seemingly unrelated things to create strange narratives and scenes. Once you start, you won't want to stop!

Beginners to advanced. Ages 10 and up welcome!
