Paper collages - exploring rectalinear forms - Stonehill art Club, March 2011
This session was about the children making a paper collage by using pre-cut shapes like squares, strips and rectangles. I cut the shapes for the students to use and had them in little pots. The children selected the shapes and colour that they liked and then arranged their collages, some glued as they went, others arranged their shapes and then glued as the final stage. Below are two of my collages that I used show the childen the sort of image I wanted them to achieve - explaining how I had used symmetry, repetition and balance. I wanted them to have quite tight restrictions, to make images that had a strong sense of form and structure to them. I think they did well for kids aged 8 and up.
