River and Sky students were introduced to the collage center in art class recently. The students learned how to cut out a heart shape on a folded piece of paper and used this as the base paper for their collage. They were asked to pick a theme for their collage and utilize all the materials and tools in the collage center such as paper edger scissors and glue to create the hearts that you see here.
We also looked at a collage/painting by the contemporary artist, Kerry James Marshall, and discussed how he used collage in his painting.
Can you figure out what the theme is for each heart?
