2 D Collage and Digital Montage

China concept board

A 2 Dimensional Design Course for Undergraduates includes a Color Transposition Collage Project.  Students study Color Theory and Value Relationships in order to achieve the appropriate color relationships while sourcing found color samples from magazines.  The finished work is matted with black board.  

Building upon a black and white base they create a collage, using found color samples from magazines.  Recreating approximate color relationships between different areas in the image, students establish an accurate sense of space and visual rhythm when the collage project is compared to the original photo.



An Emphasis on Color Theory and establishing specific color relationships is examined through various exercises using photographic imagery, from collage to cutting symmetrical designs, to weaving found imagery together.
Students combine digital material to create a collage via Photoshop CC.
