Biographical assemblages

Here are images of artworks by the wonderful students in my "Beyond the Palette: Experimental Acrylic Techniques" class at the Danforth Museum School in Framingham, Massachusetts. This a graduate course for teachers in the public school system. The assignment was to explore the adhesive possibilities of acrylic, in an assemblage that's a tribute to someone the student admires, inspired by the boxes of Joseph Cornell.
