You need skill for drawing.
You may feel constrained for good and bad.
So, bring some unnecessary things around you, cut them with scissors,
And paste them like a pasted picture or a jigsaw puzzle.
Feel free to come up with any ideas without rules.
Stick boots on the head, airplane wings on the cat, a bucket on the tree, and scattered items.
That is a collage.
It’s like an improvisational jazz performance.
The fun of bricolage is that you create only with something available.
There is beauty, surprise, mystery, and humor in ordinary life.
The instructor is Professor Takashi Niimi, an excellent curator, and an artist himself, who believes that “everyone is an artist” will guide you to the creative world.
This workshop will explore your hidden potential and talents.
