Stained Glass and Found Object Assemblages

August 4th - August 5th
Michelle Hinebrook |

Using commonly found metal, glass and wooden structures from chairs and mechanical parts, to household items and more, these reclaimed items will be integrated as structural supports for abstract stained glass compositions. Building onto or finding areas within objects, stained glass pieces will be designed based on the found/reclaimed object. It will also respond to the origins and symbolic meanings of the object itself. Students will learn also how to apply color in order to communicate mood as well as the overall concepts with in the artwork.
