This video presentation will focus on Art Journaling. Please bring in art journals to share with the group.
Jay Hart will will talk about her mixed media projects. She has prepared a definition list to stimulate a discussion of our own personal views of the artistic process.
Collage (French: coller, to glue) is made from an assemblage of different forms to create a new whole. A collage may sometimes include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas.
Decoupage is decorating surfaces by applying cutouts such as paper and then coating with several layers of finish such as lacquer or varnish.
Bricolage (French: bricoler, to tinker) is a piece of makeshift handiwork done by multiple, diverse methods using whatever materials are in one's environment.
Mixed Media is made from more than one medium. For example, a work on a surface combining paint, ink, collage and found objects. In this manner, many different elements of art become more flexible than with traditional artist media.
Assemblage is dimensional artistic compositions of found objects of preformed natural or manufactured materials, objects, or fragments not intended as art materials.
Melange is mixture of things or a collection of things of different kinds.
Wabi-Sabi is a Japanese world view or aesthetic sometimes described as one of beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete". Characteristics include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
