On Twitter I found out about a class from Germantown Academy in Washington, Pennsylvania who studied Romare Bearden’s artwork as well as my collage work, and then made their own “painting with paper” collages. When I saw images of the students’ work, I just had to share them! I am pretty impressed by what this class of 4th graders came up with. Here are a few from the class:
The students worked with magazine cut-outs to make the animals and paint for the background.
It’s wonderful inspiring others, and it’s also wonderful seeing what young artists are capable of creating.
