3D Collage Boxes December 7, 2011

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 9:22 pm

6th graders just finished self-portrait boxes.  Inspired by the 3D collages made famous by Joseph Cornell, the students incorporated memorabilia and souvenirs from home.  Also included in each box is a ceramic portrait and a map of their neighborhood.  Many students also chose to create or find secret compartments, boxes, or envelopes within the larger boxes.  With these elements, each box tells a story about the student.
Check in the library soon to see the boxes, along with an artist statement to go with each one.
