Creative Spirit

This is a collage based on an experience. A month before creating this, I had taken a class on creativity. The piece contains artifacts from the class: illustrations, documentation, copied pages from journals and so on. I used colored pencil to help unite the elements and add a bit of color.

We See

The materials for this collage were handed to me at a lecture on Hannah Hoch in Boston. It was one of many seminars I attended at a national art teachers convention last March. The speaker asked 25 of us to make a collage out of the materials she put in a cellophane bag. She referred to it as a "Dada bag."
