Join Assemblage artist Sarah S. Thompson for an assemblage art zoom class designed to spark creativity. You will learn the art of arranging objects in an aesthetically pleasing way. You will be guided when you need it, but each piece will be unique as you will add your own personal items.

Purchase a supply kit or use your own supplies. (See the list below)  You will need a few tools, and your own special found objects.

 Instructor Bio:  Sarah Thompson has been answering the creative call all of her life. She grew up on an organic farm in Southern Wisconsin’s driftless area with no TV. This left more than enough time for her to exercise her vivid imagination. She was able to stretch her creative wings by studying fine art at the Chicago Institute of Art.  Her next adventure found her working in sales, which did not satisfy her creative need, and eventually, she found her way to earning a degree in graphic design and marketing. She enjoys being able to create on a daily basis in her career, along with spending time with her husband and two wonderful children. They enjoy learning and playing amid the natural beauty of northern Wisconsin.

  • Small hammer, Small pliers, handheld drill (if you have one), small screwdriver both Phillips and straight, and apron
