Cat Collage


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Wednesday Afternoon Art students explored collage with non-traditional materials this autumn.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Students began with a drawing of a cat using basic shapes. They then transferred their idea into paper shapes which they cut out.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The next step was to cut out and glue all of the body shapes using newsprint.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

This required a lot of focus as students referred back to their initial drawing during the creative process.

Students enjoyed the process which was much like creating a puzzle as they made parts and put them together.

The scrap paper box was very handy in adding details to the cats with many different colors.
