Louise Nevelson emerged in the art world amidst the dominance of the Abstract Expressionist movement. In her most iconic works, she utilized wooden objects that she gathered from urban debris piles to create her monumental installations – a process clearly influenced by the precedent of Marcel Duchamp’s found object sculptures and “readymades.” Nevelson carefully arranged the objects in order to historicize the debris within the new, narrative context of her wall sculptures. The stories embodied within her works resulted from her cumulative experiences – as a Jewish child relocated to America from Russia, as an artist training in New York City and Germany, and as a hard-working, successful woman. Her innovative sculptural environments and success within the male-dominated realm of the New York gallery system inspired many younger artists, primarily those involved in installation art and the Feminist art movements.

Trash Talkin’ with Leo Sewell ( click on above. )
Collect wood scraps and found objects, then place them in individual trays or boxes according to type. Label the boxes according to how many pieces each student is allowed to select from that box. Inexpensive and plentiful items such as buttons or craft sticks may be labeled “take as many as needed,” while other boxes may be labeled “take one” or “take up to five,” depending on the quantity or cost of the objects.

Term 1 Art project is to promote recycling. Have students research the problems associated with waste materials and have them concentrate ALL types of trash, such as aluminum cans or paper , Plastics and more. Students could produce a work of art out of objects that are creating problems for our landfills and show new ways to use unwanted materials.

Thank you for ALL your support community very appreciated.
Students will be introduced to the concepts of reducing, reusing and recycling. They will learn new vocabulary, read labels, and connect environmental concepts to their everyday experiences.
I also hope to get students excited about thinking of a personal narrative they could share with their sculptures.
