In the Coursera class that I took this summer (Introduction to Art: Concepts & Techniques with teacher Anna Divinsky) I made three of the assignments (you had to make two to get a diploma). I showed you the collage of Forever Summer and now it’s time for a look at the first assemblage in a very long time! A couple of years ago I did a lot of experimentation, all documented on the blog. Art dolls and mixed media projects, and assemblages too, at least two or three of these tin can boxes. So for this class assignment I decided to make another one in the series…
I had these bits of dead corral, found at the beach on my Egypt holiday, laying around in a box. I don’t even remember why I brought them with me home, I usually don’t like shells or that kind of dead beach finds. But now here they were, so I used them.
I painted the inside of the tin white, added a lot of silver glitter and then glued some tiny shells and those bits of white corral in place!
What do you think?
