What is collage? Collage refers to both the artistic technique of arranging and gluing pieces of various materials onto a supporting surface and to the resulting artwork. Collage is one form of mixed media. It first became popular in 1912 when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque were innovating Cubism in their painting. Some say Picasso was the first to use collage in his oil paintings. Because it combines material elements and visual culture, collage creates an exploratory and evocative process for both the artist and the viewer. 

 The Atlanta Collage Society was formed in 2006 to promote the medium of collage through professional development: art exhibitions, educational programs, instructional workshops, community outreach and membership support. In the years since its inception, the Atlanta Collage Society has grown to include artists from around the Southeast, Northeast and internationally. Learning opportunities are key — as are juried local or regional exhibitions. The ACS displays a wide cross-section of styles, themes, and techniques represented by its members.
