Joseph Cornell is known for his special brand of visual poetry, brought to life in what he called the Box Construction. Cornell created little stories inside “shadow boxes” -voyages of the imagination – forged by assembling a seemingly disparate and random collection of objects into dreamlike miniature tableaus. His boxes address his interests in childhood, space, birds, and ballerinas.

This class builds on the idea of the Cornell box. We will be building our own “memory boxes” – poetic little “theatre boxes” that evoke the memories contained within. We will assemblage found objects and elevate those objects to a place of reverence – of redemption. This is a great opportunity to use the found objects you have been collecting to create a unique work of art that speaks from your heart.

You will learn basic assemblage techniques: how to collect, arrange, edit and attach found objects to your box. We will also cover basic collage techniques, using transparencies and photo transfers.

Level: Beginner and above
