Join Children’s Museum of the Arts every Monday and Thursday for hands-on art projects with CMA’s Artists in Residence. Recommended for children in grades 3-5.
Artists such as Betye Saar and Joseph Cornell use assemblage to bring new meaning and life to objects and symbols of personal significance. Using the notion of an enclosed box, students will sculpt, draw, and collage their own shadow boxes to represent their diverse identities, interests, and desires. At the end of the session, we’ll “seal” our boxes in a symbolic gesture.
