SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES
Our Artist in Residence program runs for a minimum of six weeks. Each week one of our artists visits the group for a 2 hour session. We begin the program by taking a look at materials and tools, creating a visual diary, sharing ideas, and completing fun drawing and construction exercises useful for the assemblage artist.
During the program students are likely to meet all the Assemblage Sisters. We like to play to our strengths and our special interests so students can make the most of what we have to offer.

In the final session students will display their work and make final entries in their visual diaries. We encourage students to fill their diaries with drawings, photographs, images from magazines, and any items they find interesting that can be glued down. This could include work they have done with their educators in between visits from the Assemblage Sisters.

We do ask you to provide us with any information that will assist in creating a rounded program. For example, the books students are reading, music they are listening to, and excursions and incursions they have recently attended.
We provide teachers with links to classroom materials that can be used prior to our visit. These may include information on tools and techniques we will be using and background information on artists whose work is indicative of a particular style, art movement or technique.
The Assemblage Sisters are experienced sustainability educators. Sure we can tell you which bin to put it in but we can also discuss the selection of art materials and their aesthetic and physical properties and the implications of creating waste for arts sake.
Sustainability is a complex topic. We encourage students and teachers to explore the challenges of balancing social, economic and environmental concerns in their art practice.
Workshop safety is everyone's responsibility. The Assemblage Sisters take safety seriously. We teach students of all ages how to establish and maintain a safe and functional workspace. We also adhere to a strict rule of "You made the mess you clean the mess".
