Check out the amazing talent of her students! Ms. K combined a variety of art techniques to help students illustrate their most favorite memories. As Ms. K mentions in her post, “These collages became a snapshot of time and something the kids really connected with.” The post is entitled “Memory Collages.” Click on the title to view the post!
The students painted a solid color onto a sheet of paper. While the paint is still dry, students dragged the paint scrapers across the sheet and formed a variety of textured prints. The image above shows how one student dragged her paint scraper first horizontally then vertically across the sheet of paper to get a unique plaid look! What a perfect texture for her dress!
This artist used a thinner paint scraper to get a lovely weave effect! The brown matches wonderfully with the purple! As you can see in the image, some students decided to combine colors before using the paint scrapers. Ms. K integrated aspects of color theory throughout her lesson to help students get acquainted with how colors can be arranged and matched in interesting ways.
Some students even found that they could turn their projects into 3D collage pieces! This student’s ingenious take on a camping scene inspired some of his classmates to do the same with their projects.
Thanks to Mollie for this inspirational post!
