Colagem ∞ Collage
In late january took place the first workshop with the complete Cobalto team, as Sandra was in São Paulo for a short period, we offered an immersion in the practice of collage which lasted three meetings, in partnership with the Oficina São João ♥. We were very lucky that the group of participants was amazing, and very happy with the result!!
During the project development, we strongly cared about gathering all sorts of materials that could enrich the research and language of each participant, so we started collecting papers of various colors, patterns and textures, atlases and old encyclopedias, magazines of different genres, etc. We also organized introductions for each meeting presenting references that we like and that brought interesting discussions for the practice of collage.
|Grande variedade de materiais para facilitar o processo criativo ∞|
Wide variety of materials to facilitate the creative process.
|Todo encontro começava com apresentações e discussões sobre a produção de colagens ∞|
Every meeting began with presentations and discussions about the production of collage.
Each meeting was an independent module in which we proposed a theme and a final product, gradually increasing the difficulty level of this product in the course of the workshop. At the end of each day we separeted a moment for presentations of the works and talked about the difficulties and successes during the creation and development of the graphic design.
|Produção e apresentação final dos cartões postais ∞ Production and final presentation of the postcards.|
|Exercício criativo de pôsteres de filmes ∞ Creative exercise of movie posters.|
|Livretos ou séries de colagens ∞ Booklets or series of collages|
As the new space of Oficina São João is wonderful, we idealized for the workshop closing a flash exhibition of everything that was produced during the three meetings, where each one presented their work to friends who went there to say Hi and appreciate the result. We ended the evening with a super relaxed and joyful happy hour where we could also talk about many other things besides collage. :)
Somos imensamente gratas à Oficina São João por todo apoio e pela concessão do espaço, aos amigos que ajudaram no desenvolvimento, na divulgação e no apoio moral, e a todos os participantes que fizeram do workshop um sucesso absoluto!! Pretendemos dar continuidade ao Workshop: Exercícios de Ilustração, inclusive explorando técnicas e dinâmicas diferentes, fiquem ligados nos lançamentos em nossa fanpage!! ;)
