It's hard in the beginning when you are assailed with worries. Doubt can stop you from creating, even before you've started. Through guided lessons and hands-on practice, you'll get past all of these roadblocks.
When I started out, I was in the same place.
The concept of collage seems easy: Choose papers, cut them down to size, and then glue them on a page, right? So then why didn't it look right when I did that? Why do some combinations work and others don't? How do you get it to look balanced? Can I combine different kinds of papers?
You can get past those fears that hold you back!
Following the lessons and creating your own gluebook will boost your confidence in your own collage projects. Here are some of the things you'll learn:
The materials are there to support your success
It's like collaging with training wheels!
Deciding where to create your collection of collages can be challenging. In this course, the guess work of choosing a gluebook is taken away by providing you with an easy-to-use template that you will print and cut out. The video instructions will help you assemble it, and then you're ready to begin filling it with collages you create in the following lessons!
Included is a library of vintage images
To use while following along
You get access to more than 10 pages of printables to cut or tear out and use in your collage work. You can use the pieces exactly as they are placed in the lessons, or you can switch them up, or use your own.

Here's a recap of what's included along with the lessons
How much experience do I need for this course?
This class is best for beginners, though a person who has some experience but who still is not sure of themselves will also benefit. This class is also good for the person who is coming back to collage after a long break.
This is an online course. What if I want to ask questions or share my work?
Yes, this is an online course where you watch the lessons at your leisure. There are no live sessions. If you have any questions or want to share your art (I hope you do!!), there is a discussion section below each lesson. You can ask questions and upload photos to share there.
How long do I have access to the course?
You have life-time access and can return to it whenever you would like. The course is located inside the Collage Art Collective, which is a community for collage artists. Once you purchase it, you will see it in the COURSES section. If you don't already have an account in the Collage Art Collective, you will be prompted to create your account upon purchase.

I hope to see you inside
Once you’ve worked through Collage Art Basics, you’ll be on your way to confidently work with your papers on hand, to create collage that sparks joy.
I loved doing the Mini Glue Book and I have learned a lot. Thank you for taking the time to instruct us in such a peaceful way. There were some lovely papers to use and I did it right through to the end and loved every minute of it.
Thank you so much Margarete for this course. I have enjoyed it immensely and am super proud of my little book, I have even decorated the cover.
What a fun class! I enjoyed it all, and enjoyed everyone else's collages, too! Now when I look back over some of my very early attempts at collage, I see where things can be improved. Thanks so much for all the great lessons, advice, and tips.
