El Anatsui Tapestry
El Anatsui, a Ghanaian sculptor who lives and works in Nigeria, makes large-scale forms from discarded bottle caps and wrappers woven together with copper wire. In keeping with the spirit of Anatsuis’ use of discarded materials, students can use wire mesh to support dried acrylic paint that would otherwise be thrown away at the end of a class. Once dry, the piece can be shaped and reshaped or even connected until the student is pleased with the artwork!
Signet rings are popular today as jewelry, but have a history dating back to ancient times! Worn on the finger of important dignitaries and pressed into wax, they served as the unbreakable signature and seal on documents that affected the course of history. In this lesson, students make a personal, functional stamp that's always within arm's reach ... literally!
