Found Art at CCS

Village Fort by George Simmons
Village Fort by George Simmons

This month in our CCS studio class we will be making a village from found objects inspired by recycled art. The theme of our class project is “A Village in Preparation…” One of my students was so excited about this project, that he began designing a fort and a map for the village before we had completed our Tree of Life Collage project.

As George worked away on drawing a map, other students chimed in with their desired additions: a hermit’s retreat, fairy inhabitants, a playground and nursery school. It was fun to hear what everyone felt was important to include in our invented environment. It is hard to coordinate so many imaginations, but we’re going to try. Below is a slide show of our progress.
