Hacker Junk Mosaics
Sunday, August 25, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM (EDT)
Somerville, United States
The work of Joseph Cornell and Louise Nevelson, trash aesthetic, conspicuous consumption, hoarder, scrapbooking... what do these things have in common? The love of THINGS!
Bring your box of keepsakes, letters, photos and cards you've been saving for no real reason and transform them into a decorative project you can display.
Apply Melissa's "Junk Mosaic" process by combining the colors and patterns of 2D materials with the shapes and forms of 3D objects using collage and assemblage. Experiment with design, composition, and dynamics.
Bring your own - or work from Melissa's collections of papers and recycled parts from computers, printers, and other electronics.
The only requirement is imagination and creative energy!
Melissa Glick has a Masters in Art Education from Mass College of Art and has run educational programs at the Cambridge Multicultural Arts Center, Boston Ballet, Museum of Fine Arts and various after school programs. See her current work at: https://sites.google.com/site/melissasgart/.
