Art of Assemblage Workshop with Karlyn Berg
Saturday (1 Session)
NEW DATE: December 2
DAI Lincoln Park Building
2229 W 2nd St
$80 ($100 Non-member)
What you may see as junk, Mixed Media artist Karlyn Berg sees as treasure waiting to be placed into a beautiful art piece. In this workshop, participants will learn the art of assemblage collage, focusing on seeing the beauty in everyday mundane, strange, or useless 3-D and 2-D objects and repurposing materials for their own artistic inspiration.
From nostalgic 17th century Curiosity Cabinets displays to the 20th century work of Joseph Cornell, and other artists today, assemblage art has prevailed, allowing artists to question the definition of traditional art aesthetics and blur the lines between art and life itself. Come see for yourself!
Class tuition includes boxes and college materials for the workshop, but participants are welcome to bring their own trinkets, and found items to use as well.
