Art Unraveled 2012-Day 2 and 3

Day 2 and 3 I had Michael deMeng's class "Trash to Treasure."  Along the way I passed three house in a row.  A roadrunner ran in front of the first, a rabbit ran by the second, and in the front yard of the third house an adolescent coyote was standing up close to the house, just like he'd been invited over. 

I really enjoyed Michael's class and I think I learned a lot.  I've never done assemblage work before and had no idea how to construct an assemblage.  


Here is my unfinished assemblage.  The contraption at the top is the meteor which killed off most of the dinosaurs.  I've always wondered what future the dinosaurs might have had if not for the meteor.  I'm waiting for the KromaKrackle to dry and then the figures get some more paint, which should tone down the green.  And there will be some LED's added. 

I'm very happy with this class and can't wait to get started on more things when I get home.

Here's Michael deMeng at the end of the class talking about our work and how we approached problems.  If you are interested in assemblage I highly recommend his classes.
