Assemblage Art (Online)
with Colleen O'Donnell
Wednesdays, 6 – 8 pm
From the reclusive Joseph Cornell’s fantastical sculptures to Betye Saar’s complex revisioning of racist tropes, assemblage as a means of artistic expression could not be better suited for this time of social-distancing and tension. Assemblage intrinsically engages the unconscious while drawing on elements of design, whimsy, and chance to reflect a point of view and a moment in time. In this class, learn to transform everyday items, found objects, elements of nature, or memorabilia into three-dimensional sculpture and collage. Be guided through a different topic each week, delving into your own responses and ideas to create dramatic, humorous, emotional, and satirical works of art.
- Make something that has value and is relevant to our experiences in this challenging time.
- Supportive feedback of your work in a group of fellow artists.
- Experience the process of art making in 3 dimensions, working intuitively or with pre-planned drawings
- Be introduced to the historical and contemporary innovators of Assemblage Art
