Skillz Share: Make a Scrapwich

Wednesday May 20, 3 pm

Adam Bovoletis has a passion for laughin'. He's made a bunch of art, co-founded Insomniac Film Festival, has been a proud member of the Youth Council for the past four years, and likes to write in third person. This week he teaches us how to build a ‘scrapwich’ a sandwich with whatever is in your fridge!

Who is Ronald York Wilson?

Canadian painter and muralist Ronald York Wilson is best known for his large murals installed in landmark sites across Canada, including the O’Keefe Centre (now Meridian Hall ) in Toronto, and the McLennan Library at McGill University in Montreal.

In the late 1950s and early '60s, York Wilson developed an interest in abstract art and what he called “picture construction.” This led to a number of collage and mixed media works, like Untitled. York Wilson would literally build artworks using a variety of materials.

What’s the difference between collage and assemblage?

COLLAGE: A technique of composing a work of art by pasting various materials on a two-dimensional surface. Newspaper clippings, photographs and magazine excerpts are just some examples of materials that can be used to create a collage.

ASSEMBLAGE: Assemblage is a form of sculpture comprised of found objects. These objects can be anything organic or human-made. Essentially, anything that catches your eye and fits into your vision of a final product is fair game!

Of course you can build a sandwich using the collage technique (you can hang the final product on your refrigerator!) but if you’re considering eating the final product, try an assemblage. Use unlikely items from your fridge and pantry to create a harmonious composition of deliciousness. Don’t forget to snap a photo of your masterpiece before chowing down.
