I wanted my last art project with the preschoolers to be extra special and it was so much fun. The innate creative genius of children never ceases to amaze and delight me. I showed the children the work of Joseph Cornell, an American artist who brought assemblage to the forefront as an art form through his work done in the 1940s and 50s. We cut and tore magazine pictures the first week and then the second week the children brought in "treasures" from home to glue in their boxes. It is hard to not show a picture of all of them, I loved them all.
