Making a hand-made collage like this one is a very simple and fun art project that can be done at home. It's a great project for keeping the Covid-19 lockdown blues away! That's the premise for my new online art program which is being offered through MAX Ottawa a nonprofit health organization for guys into guys.
Every second month I'll be posting a new art challenge for MAX clients to do at home using supplies that are commonly found around the house, or that are relatively inexpensive (such as what can be found at a typical dollar store). Once completed, guys can submit a photo of their creation to be included in MAX Ottawa's online art gallery!
If you're a guy who is into guys and live in the Ottawa/Gatineau area, send me an e-mail at MAX Ottawa and I'll contact you with information about the next online event: email@example.com
As for the collage examples shown here, they were each made using images that I found online and printed out on my home printer. Then I cut out the printed shapes with scissors, and made my own letters which I cut out from various colours of Bristol board. Next, I arranged all the shapes the way I wanted and glued it all down, one piece at a time, onto the back board using a glue stick. Below is another collage featuring my favourite web-crawling superhero, the amazing Spider-Man!!!
Taking some time to do a relaxing art project, such as a collage, is very helpful in reducing stress. It also gives you positive feelings of accomplishment and is something to be proud of that you made all on your own! Go ahead and give it a try! :) -Mikey
