Collage is a fancy, French word that means "to glue".
We say that a piece of artwork is a "collage" if it has materials glued to it. Many things can be used to create a collage.
Can you look at this artwork and find something that may have been glued?
Do you see something that may have been torn or cut in this artwork?
In collage you can use many different materials to make something new!
Just to name a few:
beautiful, interesting papers that are torn or cut
text from any source
This week we will practice with some of these materials and learn how use the different types of glues and scissors, punches and texture tools.
We will explore the collage studio and "prove" our skills in our Artifact Books!
Here are some examples of students working with the art of collage!
When you visit the collage studio you will find many materials that you can use to make a collage on paper. You might also make something in the sculpture studio and then take it to the collage studio to "collage" it. You might make a painting or do a drawing and add some collage work to it. Think about it!
