‘Outta the Box’ Assemblage Art Camps are open for signups with a new camp beginning Saturday, October 21st. The camps are hosted by assemblage artists Spencer Brewer and Esther Siegel and open to all levels of experience or non-experience and artistic backgrounds. No formal art education is needed. Spencer & Esther will share the secrets of their own assemblage practice, offer assistance to help guide your creative process and expand your scope of usable materials.
Assemblage is a three-dimensional art form made up of everyday objects that normally don’t live together. These objects are scavenged and collected to help create unique art pieces. The result is both fun and a ‘wow’ experience for the artist and the observer. The goals are to 1) learn the basics of assemblage, 2) create a finished art piece out of a ‘case’, 3) increase your sense of community, 4) ‘sparkle’ your intuition, and 5) have some fun!
These theme-orientated camps will involve using a ‘case’ to create your art piece. A case is a container that is designed to hold or protect something. Examples include boxes, instrument cases, cigar boxes, anything that holds other objects. Participants will have the opportunity to display their work in a group show at the Corner Gallery in Ukiah early 2024.
Workshops are Saturday, October 21st from 9:00 to 5:00, and Saturday, November 11th from 9:30 to 5:30.
Space limited to 8 participants. Fee is $200 (includes a scrumptious lunch, some materials and the gallery lease). The location is at Spencer & Esther’s sculpture barn in Redwood Valley.
