The second graders studied the funky Russian-born artist, Louise Nevelson. We had a great time discussing her work, her personal style and the meaning of her work. She uses found objects (not trash!) to "put together" her artwork. These are called "assemblages" - as in putting something together. My second graders easily recognized the word "assemblage" from "Avengers assemble". Good connection!
Here's our famous artist and her's one of her works:
Now, here are the second graders hard at work as well as their final assemblages. Pretty radical!
