Contemporary Collage

We are officially on a mini Thanksgiving break and I wanted to be sure that my 5th graders were able to finish up their collage faces inspired by contemporary artist Wangechi Mutu.  Students were introduced to the genre of Surrealist Art first, through a slideshow that showcased artists Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte.

I asked my 5th graders to be creative when it came to creating their collage faces.  They had to construct a face that only used 2-3 human features at most and they had to be “innovative” with the rest.  They did not disappoint!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving break filled with lots of food & love!!

P.S!  Parents, I am accepting donations in the forms of magazines!  My current stock of magazines are cut up, used and abused – we are in desperate need of some fresh ones please.  If anyone has any magazines at home or at an office that they can donate to the art program – it would be greatly, GREATLY appreciated 🙂
