Course Aims

Our memories are a very important part of who we are – our histories, our relationships, and our experiences. Memory Collage is an opportunity to think back, reflect on our memories and make art work using traditional and contemporary techniques and processes inspired by the past and how the past affects the present.

This could involve using old family photographs to make paintings from, or creating 3D scrapbooks with a range of collage materials.
