Art Quote of the Day

ARRANGEMENTS
“Go out and collect any item you can find in abundance. (leaves work well for this in the fall). Bring them home and come up with as many ways of displaying and arranging them as possible.Try to think of things you’ve never considered before( such as sealing them in ice, covering book covers with them, making a long chain that reaches the length of your house), etc. really explore the material and try to understand it, how it works, how it is affected by different factors, (movement, humidity, weight) Experiment with arrangements that the viewer can physically interact with ( make a tunnel, a web, a house). Try adding other materials, (water,dirt, or paint).
