Class Description: Create an unusual piece of art, capture a memory, or express something meaningful to you through a powerful medium of assemblage. Think of assemblage as a three-dimensional collage. The workshop will focus on exploring different ways to use found objects to create a unique and exciting form. Scavenge your junk drawers and old photo albums and bring in personal ephemera you can utilize in your creation. We will provide the base, adhesives, light tools, and extra materials to aid in the creative process. No special skills or prior experience is required, just your willingness to have fun!
