In this studio class for creating collage-based works, facilitated by acclaimed printmaker Terence Hammonds, students will work through various methods and techniques for cutting and applying images as well as composition and layout.

"To me, collage is the quintessential postmodern technique. Taking images from various sources and combining them to making new images. In the same way that a DJ takes snippets of music to create a whole new song we will do the same thing with Images. For my prints, all the images start off as collages. For me, this class is an opportunity to embrace that process and use the collages as a final pieces of work.”    – Terence  Hammonds

Students will have the unique privilege of working with materials donated from the incredible collection of the late artist Sara Pearce. Most materials provided but students are also encouraged to look for and bring to the class to use &/or share additional materials they like or that are especially fitting to their own projects.
About Terence Hammonds
Cincinnati native Terence Hammonds is a printmaker who received at BFA from the school of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in conjunction with Tufts  University. His work is informed and inspired by the struggles and determination of African Americans seeking equality during the civil rights movement of the 1960s and fuses imagery from that era with soul, funk, rap and punk music. Hammonds appropriates imagery from various movements and civil rights history and combines them with decorative motifs and patterns that adorn, memorialize and abstract histories of racial identity in America.

About Sara Pearce
The late, Sara Caswell-Pearce was a Cincinnati-based collage artist, printer and graphic designer who could not get enough paper. Old paper. Grungy paper. Peculiar paper. Paper retrieved from trash baskets and dumpsters. Paper spotted at book sales and flea markets. Paper unloaded by friends and strangers. Her passion was for finding antique images, and helping them tell a new story–via snarky greeting cards and complex, layered fine-art collages in which she combines antique and vintage materials with hand-painted and hand-printed backgrounds, and handmade paper. Her work is generally narrative, with a feminist slant. After an array of careers (public relations, libraries, restaurants, journalism) she became a full-time, professional artist. -Still They Persisit
