Open Studio

CAG X Collage Collage: Mini Galleries

For our fourth and final remote Open Studio with Erin Boniferro of Collage Collage, Erin leads us through an exploration of the gallery space; a place where artists, curators, program directors and others come together to bring artwork to the public.

Watch the video and follow along as Erin creates a mini gallery out of a cardboard box. She’ll share tips and tricks for creating a variety of mini artworks out of found objects and materials.


  • cardboard box or 3 pieces of cardboard
  • scrap paper and magazines you can cut up to collage
  • glue stick
  • liquid white glue
  • found and recycled objects (beads, pompoms, stickers, small containers, etc.)
  • washable paint like tempera and paint brush
  • scissors or box cutter
  • tape (optional)
  • assorted markers, pencils, pencil crayons or crayons

This activity is recommended for artists 4 years and up. Adult supervision is recommended for scissor work!
