Louise Nevelson inspired collages

While teaching a lesson on texture, I decided to introduce the class to the art of Louise Nevelson.  She used found objects to create sculpture.   She then painted her pieces all one color.  This is what the kids tried to recreate.  I brought boxes filled with random objects.  The students glued them on platforms made from crafts sticks.

Once their projects had dried overnight, they chose one color to paint them.   These small jars of tester paint were donated to the school I was working with.  They were perfect for our project.

We loved how the project turned out and all agreed they looked like something Louise Nevelson might make.
