Joseph Cornell boxes

Students explore the art of Joseph Cornell to create art with found objects or assemblages. Participants select a specific theme for their box looking for 2 dimensional images and 3 dimensional objects within that theme. It may be as simple as the color green or as complicated as a political theme. Using that singular idea students create a themed enclosed 3D box beginning with collaging, drawing or painting the box and then filling it with found or created 3D objects.
