According to the dictionary, collage art is “an artistic composition made of various materials (as paper, cloth or wood) glued on a surface.” The word comes from the French word “coller,” meaning to glue or to paste. You may use any material or found objects; glue them down to produce art. It is sometimes combined with painting and other medium in a single work of art. They are also called other names: montage, assemblage, and decoupage.
