Saturday - MORE THAN WORDS Exhibition




Today an exhibition at Pyramid Atlantic Art Center featured art works by students in the
Pyramid Atlantic MORE THAN WORDS after school project Adjoa Burrowes and I have been teaching at the Silver Spring International Middle School.





The exhibition included folded books, altered magazine sculptures, collage constructions,
prints, and collages on hand-made paper - the hand made paper was made in class by the students.



Re-cycling was a major theme so the students used cast-off materials to make their art work.

Old magazines







card board slide holders are the bases for the small works which are covered with magazine papers.




The program includes art-making and storytelling. The images in these simple line prints are in response to a telling of Scheherazade and tales from the Arabian Nights.
