K/1 Art Update – November 2015

Over the last couple of weeks, K/1 Art students have been learning about collage. First, we read the story Perfect Square by Michael Hall. In this story, a perfect square is altered in a different way each IMG_5307day – crumpled, torn, hole-punched or cut into ribbons. When the various transformations take place, the square turns itself into different objects, like a bridge, fountain or park.

Inspired by the story, students started with a small square a large square. They used hole punchers, crafting scissors and paper crimpers to alter their smaller squares and attach the pieces in a new way to the larger square, making a collage.

The students enjoyed that so much that we made more collages the next week, with bigger paper and many more colored construction paper scraps available to them.
