Another assemblage artist you all might like is Jane Perkins! Here is an article about her. She uses recycled and found objects to create very lifelike portraits. As part of my first graders "Recycled Art" curriculum theme I thought a little group assemblage would be nice. Our school mascot is the warrior so I thought it would be a good image because it is recognizable and simple enough with limited colors. I did the under painting so they would know what colors go where and sorted a bunch of recycled and found objects into color groups. Then the students took turns one table at a time to come and add their objects to the assemblage.
