Recently I was invited by my good friend Val Woldman, who is a Humanities college professor at Valencia College in Winter Park, to come up with a Post Modern Pop Art Collage and share the technique with her class. I thought to myself....me? teach? COLLEGE STUDENTS??!! NO WAY! How could I possibly do that? I dropped out of college to jump into the Big World and go to work! But hey what did I have to lose? I decided to go for it!
Val brought home some Pop Art books and as I was scanning through them I came across this Robert Indiana Love Poster and I immediately knew what I wanted to do.
I thought it would be a cool idea for the students to collect wrappers from things that they consume on a regular basis and collage them behind the word LOVE. I was seriously blown away by the direction that each person took with their piece! At one point during the class I actually said out loud....OMG I love teaching college students! They were all so kind and it was a piece of cake! I am teaching one more time for Val next month and this time I am actually quite excited!
