Surrealist Assemblage Art For Kids
What we are on the outside doesn’t always reflect who we are on the inside. In this class we create odd and intriguing monster sculptures, and create a small storybook telling the tale of what they are expected to be and who they actually are. In Surrealist fashion, participants will begin with a random assortment of objects and from this will imagine and design an original monster. Natural and found objects of small and medium size will be used. Modeling materials, acrylic paint, and collage will help us to refine the vision. Beautiful or hideous, gentle or fierce, we will get to know the nature of
our creations, and weave the stories of their inner conflicts. sneaky tricks, and wistful longings.
