What is a collage and why should I create one?

A collage is a technique that combines different images or objects into a single artwork. A traditional collage can be made using objects or cuttings from magazines that are then glued to a surface such as paper or card. Digital collages use imagery that is edited and combined using image editing software.

Collages make great standalone art pieces or they can be used to explore different styles, colors or help convey a theme before starting a final piece of work.
