Collage Lab Part II

by StefiaMadelyne

Ariana posted her beautiful photographs in an earlier post and eloquently explained our fabulous, community-engaged, DIY Collage Lab at Creation Nation’s headquarters in Newark, NJ.  It is such a large, beautiful space and while we created, so did others around us.  There are many photos here, and I hope they do justice to the beauty of the space, the collaborative creative atmosphere, and the wonderful experience of transformative works of art in action!  Enjoy!!

PART I – Lab: DIY collage workshop

by Ariana Stolarz

This past Saturday, from 12-4pm Athena, Stephia, and myself conducted a DIY collage workshop in Newark, NJ at the Barat Youth Initiatives headquarters. Watch all the photos here.

We were  joined by a community volunteers, in the creation of a big banner for the upcoming Creation Nation Parade. 15 highschool students joined the session along with numerous community artists and volunteers. We used Art Basel fine art catalogues (2008) and  deconstructed them into collage.Our collective artwork will  march on October 23rd in the parade with thousands of students, and stand in Washington Park for a youth music festival at the end of the parade!
