A collage is a form of art that is created with a mixture of visual arts and materials to showcase a message, theme or a random collection of objects. Creating a collage is possible on canvas, paper or any flat surface. The word "collage" is derived from "coller", a French word that translates to "glue".

Collages often include printed materials, newspaper clippings, ribbons, stickers and actual photographs. Decorating the canvas below the collage is possible with traditional paints and stencils for a detailed design.
