The Art of Collage program at the Fairfield Public Library will allow you to tap into your inner artist. This program was introduced last fall and by popular demand will continue on Saturday, October 18 from 10:00 to noon in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Anyone over 18 years of age may participate in the program. The series will continue on November 15, December 20, and April 5.
Collage is a form of art in which various materials such as photographs, pieces of paper or fabric are arranged and adhered to a backing. Unlike other art groups, this group is void of still life and portraits. There are no watercolors, acrylics, markers or crayons. All you need is a willingness to get creative and the ability to cut and glue. At times the presenter will suggest a prompt; however, most of the time you will be encouraged to listen to that little voice inside you and collage what you hear. Materials will be provided. The first hour and a half will be devoted to collage and the last thirty minutes you will share your work.
Advanced registration is required due to the limited space and materials. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event call 203-256-3160, or visit us on the web www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org
