Collages are an often overlooked art technique – but why? It’s such an accessible art form. If you’re hoping to integrate more visual art in your teaching, definitely try collage. It’s simple, effective, and is a great medium for both in-person and online teaching.
Crayons, markers and colored pencils are the most common art supplies in classrooms and homes. Even more collage materials are all around us! Think about all of the junk mail you receive. Those magazines, catalogs and postcards have some very interesting patterns and images.
Exploring this medium is a great way to connect across content areas and bring in creativity at every level.
