Linda's interior collage lesson WILL be put on
Incredible Art Department. I might suggest using
wallpaper for the walls (smaller prints) - or having
students creat their own wall paper patters a la
Matisse with stamp printing.
I can even see this being done with Surrealism - have
students create a surreal environment through the
window (a al Magritte)...or a dream through the
window....so many possibilities.
Here is a project I would LOVE to see
I'd love to see students create a surreal collage from
then render it in colored pencil - or maybe a value
scale drawing in pencil - or watercolor - or even
It would be so cool if they could even take it one
more step and create a ceramic (or other technique)
sculpture of part of the composition a la Dali (I have
some great images of Dali sculptures done from his
paintings). For those who don't do clay -- maybe this
could be a lesson that you could do along with the
ceramics teacher? Have ceramics and scupture class
create the scultures from your students' surreal
compositions (showing collaboration -- done so much in
the art world today)?.
Since we still don't know what grade level we are
looking for.... I will just post the URL's for what I
DO have on the site. I know I'll miss some of them so
do some exploring for ones I miss.
