Last month I heard from Lisa, a teacher from Wolsingham, England, who sent me images of her class’s artwork. Her Year 4 class was learning about collage. They studied Henri Matisse’s work of “painting with scissors” and my “painting with paper” technique.
Above is a piece that was completed by the entire class, while below are images of some of the student work (their plans and finished pieces).
I always enjoy hearing from teachers and seeing student collage work. It definitely made my day when I received these images of colorful artwork in my inbox.
I really enjoyed seeing how these students incorporated different textures and colors into their work. I was also really impressed with how they layered bits and pieces of paper. I hope they continue to explore collage and work on different compositions in the future.
