Assemblage Sculpture from Home (ONLINE) SC 700EA_ON

$250

with Colleen O’Donnell

Calendar Jul 6, 2020 , runs for 5 weeks

Assemblage is a creative method of sculpture, transforming everyday found-objects into three-dimensional sculpture, as seen in the work of Joseph Cornell and Louise Nevelson. Start with a box, and include photographs, book pages, wrapping paper, natural items, nuts and bolts, electronic bits, dry food – just about anything! This process allows for the creation of dramatic, humorous, emotional and satirical works of art. Be guided through a different topic each week by CE faculty and sculptor Colleen O’Donnell. Live Zoom sessions will be held every Tuesday, 6 – 8 p.m.

Learning Objectives

  • Relax, have fun, and let the sculpture happen intuitively.
  • Make something that has value to you personally.
  • Create a statement about what you are experiencing right now.
