Everyone worked very hard using the special glass paints on large sheets of Acrylic. There were children of all ages from 3 year old twins upwards.

Bit of a back to front posting, this one should have been last week.  I was on-duty as Judy in our live action version of punch and judy - during the breaks i sketch painted some of our street theatre group in their wonderful costumes from a bygone era (more about them here - http://www.bigfish.org.uk/newbigfish/
each sketch completed using watercolours was no more than 5mins in order to let my sitters escape.

My first Assemblage
avalon2000

Assemblage is an artistic process in which a three-dimensional artistic composition is made from putting together found objects

The best way to approach an assemblage is to make it personal, spend some time collecting thing all manner of items/things/bits an bobs. Then lay them out roughly in groups. An idea of the box frame shape should now come to mind. Use colored papers/magazine pages or paints to decorate the box. Then fix the items within. Try an arrange them to tell a theme or story.
