Miss Mitten's Collage Academy
MMCA is an ever evolving project and provides collage art classes for all walks of life from classes in village halls in rural communities to artist led workshops at galleries such as the Saatchi in London where MMCA has had an annual class since 2015. The classes provide an opportunity for people to explore their creativity within an instant - collage as a medium is a wonderful way to work; an instant palette with no daunting ‘blank canvas’ and creating a collage seems to tap into the imagination straight away. Especially for those who feel they don’t have a creative bone in their body or are seeking other ways to reignite their creative spark again. One of the things I notice and love about running these classes is how collage brings conversation and humour to the class; everybody has a story to tell whilst simultaneously creating works of art without really noticing - this is where the magic happens!
