ATC @ Bishan Library Oct 2013

The word collage originates from the French word “coller,” meaning to stick or to paste. You select any materials or found objects that you want and stick them right down to produce a piece of collage artwork. Collage may be the mix of bits of different things and media, for example magazines, fabric, package labels, paint pictures, into a single arrangement.

In a word collage, you would be using words and gluing them together on a surface area like a sheet of paper to express a feeling or thought with lots of words. You are making the collage more imaginative – more than a couple of words in writing – by utilizing different fonts and colors. But don't let your creativity stop with fonts and colours!

I made the above collage ATCs for the Oct ATC session in Bishan Library on 10 Oct, but had to miss it as I was catching the flight to New York that night.  Looked like everyone had a colourful night!

Well, the next ATC session would be on 14 Nov (Thu), 6.30 pm, at the Bishan Library.  The theme: Fantasy.
