Introduction to Mixed Media Assemblage Workshop
In this workshop, we'll explore the shadow box constructions of artist Joseph Cornell. We’ll study his evocative arrangements and analyze his ability to create depth in a shallow space utilizing a variety of media and found objects. We’ll learn composition, layering and gluing techniques leading us to a successful shadow box assemblage. Students will receive a shadow box at the first class exactly like the one featured in the online class description.
To plan your assemblage options, please refer to the Materials List for box dimensions. Students will collect collage papers, photos, ephemera and objects both interesting and personal to assemble.
Also for the first class, students should have a preliminary idea in mind for their assemblage - perhaps it is a personal memory, an emotion, or an interesting narrative that could be explored in this fascinating art form. The goal is to complete a finished construction by the end of the workshop.
