Louise Nevelson inspired Chipboard Assemblage Objectives • Use the shapes you are given. You have the freedom to cut them down to any size you need. 2) Arrange them in a visually interesting assemblage (glued on side to achieve 3-Dimensional assemblage) that utilizes the elements and principles of design. 3) Apply uniform foil finish to your assemblage and (optional) Plan a color scheme to unify your assemblage.
