Coffee & Classic Collage

February 17 @ 9:00 am 12:00 pm

Classic collage — or the art of selecting, arranging, and combining diverse elements into harmonious chaos — is an overlooked meditative and spiritual practice.

Join us for a slow morning of casual Coffee & Classic Collage on Saturday, February 17th, in Yawkey Hall from 9am-12pm.

We are holding space for you to get creative.

Ditch your to-do list. Ignore the laundry. Shake off perfectionism. And create for the sake of creating — No rules. No judgement. No apologies.

This peaceful gathering is for artists, crafters, and creative beginners alike, and is open to adults and high school-aged youth.

We’ll provide examples, gentle guidance, and supplies to get you started. Participants may bring materials and tools from home to work on a project, too. Suggested items:

  • Old magazines, books, and newspapers
  • Photographs to integrate
  • Daily calendar quotes
  • Old or blank greeting cards
  • Poetry books for inspiration
  • Preferred markers or water-based paints
  • Old artwork you’d like to upcycle
  • Textured items: thread, netting from oranges, etc

Registration for this relaxing morning of community art is preferred (so we can prepare supplies & snacks), but drop-ins are welcome. RSVP below!

Why the art of collage?

The art of collage allows you to tap into a meditative state. Collage becomes a mindful practice as the deliberate placement of diverse elements coming together in harmonious chaos.

Art is a transformative vehicle for spiritual or emotional exploration, offering a sacred space where one can transcend the mundane and connect with the profound.

This meditative process not only fosters a deep connection with one’s inner self but also provides a means for a collective sense of interconnectedness through shared experiences.
