#Fairfield, CT– The Art of Collage program at the Fairfield Public

Library will allow you to tap into your inner artist. This program was introduced last fall and by

popular demand will continue on Saturday, January 25 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the Memorial

Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Anyone over 18 years of age may participate

in the program. The winter/spring series will continue on February 8, and February 22, April 5,

April 19, May 10 and May 24.

Collage is a form of art in which various materials such as photographs, pieces of paper or fabric

are arranged and adhered to a backing. Unlike other art groups, this group is void of still life and

portraits. There are no watercolors, acrylics, markers or crayons. All you need is a willingness

to get creative and the ability to cut and glue. At times the presenter will suggest a prompt;

however, most of the time you will be encouraged to listen to that little voice inside you and

collage what you hear. Materials will be provided. The first hour and a half will be devoted to

collage and the last thirty minutes you will share your work.

Advanced registration is required due to the limited space and materials. All programs at the

Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event
