CANCELLED – Found Object Construction with Michael Burbank

Sorry, we’ve had to cancel this class due to low participation.
Students who attend this workshop should bring some materials that they would like to include in the assemblage. We will review some assemblage art history from master to maniacs to pique our interest in the varieties of form and materials available. We will review “gluing and screwing” techniques.
Michael Burbank is a self-taught artist and “junk” collector. He has been scouring beaches, bottle dumps, and rust farms for years looking for  odds ‘n sods that spark his imagination.  He has installed commissioned works of assemblage in private collections in Boston, North Carolina, San Francisco, and Wellfleet.
Dates: Saturday & Sunday, June 8 & 9th  (one class, total of 6 hours, the time in between is so participants can look for more sculpture material)

Time:  10 am – 1 pm each day

Place:  The Vaughan Homestead

Instructor: Michael Burbank

Tuition: $70 for members* $80 for non-members

* Current members of the Kennebec Valley Art Association or the Vaughan Homestead Foundation.
