Create Your Own Broadsides

A broadside is an art print that incorporates imagery and printed text, typically highlighting a poem or short piece of prose. You need not consider yourself a writer to attend this playful workshop; students will bring a favorite poem, mantra, or piece of text to work with. Methods and techniques for incorporating found text, textures, and imagery using things like collage, image transfers, scanners, and photocopiers will be explored. Additionally participants will learn tricks for idea generation and playing with language through collaboration, text manipulation, and editing. Students will walk away with several unique broadsides and tons of inspiration for future projects.
