Constructing A Painting Surface

Students will build a surface from found objects binding them together with nails, screws, wire and glue. Many materials can be used for this surface, including wood, metal, plastic, toys, or any manner of bits and bobs. Using acrylic, students will paint on the constructed surface, playing with the 3D materials and composition. Besides the art and creativity of the process, students will also learn hand-tool usage and safety.
