The Art of Collage with Dunia Barrera

August 24 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for this artist-led workshop with Dunia Barrera

International artist Dunia Barrera returns to the Carriage Barn on Saturday, August 24 with this in-depth workshop exploring the medium of collage.  Play and create without expectations while connecting with yourself and others. 

 – Collage a memory

 – Learn how to blackout vintage real letters and illustrate them

 – Explore the relationship between color and shapes in an abstract collage

Collage is derived from the French ‘papier collé’, (pasted paper) and coller means”to glue” or “to stick together.”  It is a technique of art creation, primarily used in the visual arts, but in music too, by which art results from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

Testimonials from others who have taken a workshop with Dunia:

My neighbor and I went to the collage workshop together.  It was a great setting for us to be creative with others.  There was an educational portion and some activities time after that.  Sharing the finished projects with others was a nice way to get to know more about other participants.  Overall, an enjoyable way to learn, be creative and interact with community residents.  Dunia was kind, intellectual and motivated the group to design some excellent results.  I would recommend this workshop!

“My work is directed by concepts and ideas such as gender roles, dynamics of power and control and the complexity of the human being. I do this by exploring how objects can help us understand the deeper complexity of people’s experiences. My work expresses in different mediums, it all depends on what the idea needs to be. I am interested in how men see women and women see men. I like to create space to express the full complexity of their humanity and allow them to express it. Likewise, I bring an idea into different substrates such as objects, papers, textiles depending on what it needs. Many of my works show men, as I think it is important to acknowledge their complexity too because only so and in conjunction with works showing women we will make the whole spectrum complete”
