Type of Class: Assemblage, Mixed Media

Time: Oct 24, 5:30 pm to 8 pm

Price: $80 ($65 Members)

This unique workshop will be another first for ESAC!  This workshop truly embraces discovery, creativity, and imagination. Charlsie Jones and ESAC are excited to add Found Art Assemblage to our curriculum.  Along with a brief history of found art artists, Charlsie will demonstrate arrangement and assembly followed by studio time. Although ESAC will have a stock pile of “good junk” to be used, we encourage students to begin harvesting their own pieces.

Save old pennies, screws, bottle tops, keys, single earrings, broken jewelry, jar lids, gears, board game pieces, alarm clocks, license plates, and anything else you would like to incorporate in your piece.  Students are encouraged to source old wall clocks, wooden boxes, cigar boxes, pieces of wood and other forms that may serve as the base of their project.  Students may begin to bring in their collections the week of the workshop to be stored. ESAC will have supplies on hand for students to use, too.


WARNING: This course will also provide instruction on how to properly use tools like soldering irons, screwdrivers, and high heat glue guns. Students MUST be cautious and mature enough to follow instructions.

AGES 10 to 15 

ESAC will provide snacks and refreshments!  Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.

Charlsie Jones, a former SCAD student, has taught with ESAC since Summer 2018.  A non stop ball of energy and creativity, Charlsie has established herself as the go to instructor for visual arts exploration and instruction.  From scratchboard to origami, from Aboriginal cave rocks to shoe box dioramas, Charlsie’s projects open up the mind and the art pantry. She wrangles kiddos during the First Friday Kids Lab, Summer Art Bash, and Afterschool art classes. When she isn’t sharing her love of art with little artists, she enjoys photography, studio art, and scavenger hunts.
