Last spring, I had the opportunity to teach a lesson on making collages in my son's 4th grade class. I was so inspired during the lesson, watching the children's enthusiasm as they made their collages, that I came home and immediately made some collages. Here are two of my first collages.
In this abstract collage, I used a combination of paper and fabric, combining images and text with visual and tactile texture. To emphasize linear elements in the composition, I added some black yarn. My second attempt below is a more recognizable abstract landscape composition. I layered tissue paper along with a combination of fabric and plain paper.
