"Assemblage" is the 3-D version of "collage”. "Found object fragments," "discards," or "throwaways" (artist's work to look at: Schwitters, Cornell, Rauschenberg, Bearden, etc.).

These things are organized by their specific elements. The resulting groups are then arranged into compositions of art.

Extending to many cultures of people living in family, religious, work, and various other groups; We could be viewed as a complex living version of "assemblage”(Webster 1. a group of persons or things gathered or collected).

We have “found” each other by chance; either by blood, common goals, or a certain chemistry. These connections help to formulate new ideas, innovations, and even new generations. John Anderson

On PBS TV: N.C. elementary schools promise arts education but access is far from equal

I am so excited to finally see a segment about arts education in the public schools on a television news program. PBS singles out North Carolina as an example of inconsistencies of the amount of time for the mandated arts; but point out the existence of the problem across the nation. Please click here to see the video segment: Arts education inconsistencies
