Collage Animals Project

Artists use quirky collage papers to create trendy, cool, and frame-worthy art for your walls.  Learn about the power of “white space”.

Materials needed: Two 8.5 x11" print-outs of project per artist (one to create on, one to "frame" the piece), miscellaneous collage papers*, glue sticks. Optional: paint // Simplify: Have younger students color in the animal shape using crayons, old pastels, and paint // Elevate: use the same materials in each piece, frame together as a cute kid's room decor idea; come up with your own additional animals to compete the series: turtle, fish, deer, etc. Younger artists will need help cutting out their animal shapes.
