Third Class Create assemblages

Third class studied completed a study of the artist Louise Nevelson.  The Russian-born American abstract sculptor, Louise Nevelson, who moved to the USA in 1905, only took up art seriously at the age of 30.

She became known in the 1950s and 1960s for her unique style of wooden relief-like assemblage art.  Typically, this involved the creation of large wooden structures – often taking up an entire wall – which consisted of numerous compartments filled with arrangements of “found” objects, commonly fragments of furniture, painted in flat uniform colours – black, gold or white.

She used cast aside objects, others people’s trash, and created beauty out them.

We took inspiration from her and created beautiful assemblages out of rubbish, broken toys, necklaces etc that were lying around our homes.
