Collage Crash-Course

Happy Monday!

As you know, we've been working on making books like author/illustrator Eric Carle.  First, we had to write our stories. Second, we painted papers to use in illustrating.

Today, we started using our painted papers to create collages to illustrate our books.  Ms. Meredith (our ELL teacher and former Art major) gave the students a demonstration on how to create collages.

The key was not to trace the animal as a whole, but instead to break it into pieces and assemble the pieces into a whole animal.

What a nice school of fish!

Aren't these jellyfish adorable?

It was only Day 1 of collages, and we will probably continue all the way until the end of the year.  Just after today though, the kids did great!  Stay tuned for a post about their progress!

I can't wait to see the final books!

Until next time,
-Miss Woodward
