What you'll learn in this crafts class:

  1. the act of assembling : the state of being assembled
  2. an artistic composition made from scraps, junk, and odds and ends (as of paper, cloth, wood, stone, or metal) b : the art of making assemblages
We all have a drawer or maybe a cigar box tucked away with little bits & pieces of history (junk/stuff) we’ve been waiting to do something special with, though not quite sure where to start. 

Here’s your opportunity to do something creative with them! Come spend the day and learn how to incorporate those odds & ends into a piece of art—assemblage art.

  • a small sturdy box, i.e iPhone box, iPad box, a small wooden drawer cigar box, any box 12”x12” or smaller  
  • printed papers, ephemera , photographs, maps, text books  
  • printed words/quotes/text that adds to your story

Assemblage Art: Piece by Piece
Reviewed by Mamie B. on 12/14/2017
Though I enjoyed the class I was miss lead by what the class actually is. I thought it was an actual figure drawing class but it is more of a self directed oil painting workshop. I still had a good time though.
