Teacher Workshop: Art in the Modern World: Connect

Request Program

Robert Rauschenburg once commented “I think art is more like the real world when it’s made out of the real world.” In this workshop, you’ll explore this thought by considering how artists use found objects to transform materials as they pursue powerful new meanings. By looking closely at works by ground-breaking artists, including Robert Rauschenberg, Joseph Cornell, Jim Dine, and Sonya Clark, participants will analyze different methods of assemblage. Found materials will be used to experiment in connecting meaning and material, and discussion will cover how these ideas can translate into your classroom. In addition, this is a great way to use personal found art objects as a form of self- expression.
