"E" (age 9) was recently assigned to make a collage about herself
as part of a school assignment.
I thought about this cute 4th grade art lesson
I pinned on my Art Lesson Fun Pinterest Board
I showed it to "E" and she had her own idea of how she wanted to make it.
We started by using a lamp to make a shadow of her profile against a sheet of paper
taped to the wall - I traced it lightly with pencil and she cut it out.
She picked turquoise blue, her favorite color.
Then she used google images to find pictures of a bunch of her favorite things
and we printed them out and she cut them all out and started to arrange them
on a sheet of blue construction paper.
The glued the cut paper profile on top of the collage and used markers to add details.
"E" loves snails.
Rocks and Minerals.
and of course... Art!
She made these letters on a sheet of white paper and cut them out
and glued them on top of her profile.
Her proud mama thought she did a great job and wanted to share her project with all of you.
I think it would be a great classroom lesson as well.
