Collage with a Tack Iron-Volume 4

Are you ready to bring it all together?

Working with our past experience with Volumes 1, 2, and 3, Volume 4  pulls it all together so we can fuse the magazine collage papers with  tack iron or house iron. Leaning heavy on our design knowledge, two small exercises and one larger will be explored.

Frequently Asked Questions

How will this class function?

Each student will need to come to the dashboard section of the Coursecraft format to retrieve the lessons. There is notification that the next class is open for viewing the videos and downloadable lessons.

What if I can't get back in or on?

The thing to remember is you have to login. So always go to after you are registered and login...then you should be brought to Course site I created.

How long do I have access to the course?

When the class opens it will be available to you forever and beyond.

How will this class help me understand design in abstract art?

Working in limits as just magazines papers that we altered and in simple composition, horizontal and vertical, our artistic playing field is narrow and limited. Though this doesn't sound appealing the fact is about pushing the creative thinking. Having us question how we are going to use what we have. Most of the time it's amazing to see what we can do with limits, it takes practice. This kind of collage process is a great place to start. And one that will carry over into other art mediums.

I still have a question, how can I contact you?

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. Send me an email at

Why only Magazines?

I would like us to use only magazines, though I know there are many great papers to use in collage and mostly the ones you make yourselves. I find that we get side track when we do that. If we have all the same materials it helps us stay on track and really understand what is being taught here. Later after class please do explore this process with other paper, that is the directions I would hope for you.

When will this class start?

Right after you register and enroll in the e course.

Can you use a house iron?

Yes you can, setting it cotton setting no steam and you need to have a safety release sheet between collage paper and iron so nothing sticks. Safety Release paper is a silicone coated sheet of paper that will allow heat to pass through with out anything stick to the surface when heat is applied.
