A little background to Miss Mitten's Collage Academy - I started out as a collage artist (see www.mayamitten.com) about 10 years ago and alongside my own successful practice I have run classes and workshops in all walks of life from the Saatchi Gallery in London to Hamburg to rural village halls in West Wales, as well as one 2 one classes in my studio now based in Bath. I decided to set up the Academy as a way to showcase my student's work, provide information and resources as well as introducing other collage artists from around the world with interviews discussing how they work and their take on collage.
The ethos behind MMCA is to provide support and information for all students who have attended any of my classes and to provide collage classes to all walks of life - collage is a wonderful and fun way to tap into your creative flow and certainly provided me with a medium to work in that resonated and brought out my unique style; and I believe anybody can access this - this has been proven over and over again in the diversity of classes that I have run over the years from mental health drop in centres to schools to galleries..
