ZCAF Introducing New 2017 Programs!
School’s Out Art Programs (SOAP) for Preteens in Grades 5-8

20th Century Mixed Media Techniques: Shadow Boxes
Friday, March 31, 2017
REGISTER FOR CLASS
PAY FOR CLASS 
$70 Per child
   

Participants on this date will be asked to bring in a box (shoe box, cigar box, or toaster sized) and (if desired) any of their own materials (beads, shells, bits of jewelry, baseball cards, small toys, family photos, etc.)  in which to create an ‘assemblage.’ Participants will also be provided with a wide range of materials with which to create shadow box assemblages (feathers, buttons, paper etc.).  The day will begin with a review of the art work of self-taught artist Joseph Cornell, as well as predecessors Frank Turek, Betty Radford, Allison May Kiphuth, and others. Participants will gain an understanding of the terms ‘shadow box,’ ‘collage,’ and ‘assemblage.’ Finally, participants will be given ample time to create their own shadow boxes – a suggested theme is ‘self-portrait,’ but other themes are also perfectly acceptable for this one-day project.

    MAP

Artists have long been associated with books, most often as illustrators, bookbinders, printers, and papermakers. By the middle of the 20th century, artists began to have a more direct interest in books as works of visual art in book form, and the “Artists’ Books” movement started. Participants will spend part of the week learning terms such as ‘resist prints,’ ‘artists’ books,’ and ‘bookbinding’. Participants will leave at the end of the week with a wide range of experiences & products.
