The 1-3 grade Montessori class completed the second annual art project inspired by Louise Nevelson. With recycled scrap wood, plastic, and other discarded objects donated by parents plus a copious amount of tacky glue, the children assembled their own box-sculptures.
The resulting three-dimensional collages embody the natural imagination and unique sensibility of each child. Each reveals what they like and dislike, what fascinates them, what they connect with and to. More importantly, the project was simply a ton of fun.
This is just the beginning…
The individual collage boxes will be assembled into a larger collaborative sculpture. This assembly will be painted black, in homage to Nevelson, to reveal the formal characteristics of the assembled objects. Last year’s project illustrates the idea.
A big THANKS to all the parents that helped out with the project.
