City Art Lab Update
Teaching Artists: Julia and Olivia
Last week the Perception group delved deep into their unconsciouses and sketched some potent memories after hearing a selection from Joe Brainard’s seminal 1970 memoir I Remember. Based on last week’s sketches students repurposed cigar boxes to become containers for their memories.
They were inspired by the work of Joseph Cornell, an internationally known sculptor, film maker, and writer. Some of Cornell’s work includes unique shadow boxes that feature various objects and images.
Teaching Artists: Rafael and Valeska
“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
Inspired by Muniz’s recycled collage pieces, students were asked to bring in various images to use in constructing their own collages. With a plethora of objects and items on hand, students began collages based on their images using the materials in the classroom.
