Does anyone have any lessons or ideas for a high school art fundamental
class that has the following for supplies. Faded construction paper,
various grades of white paper, tissue paper, colored pencils, and oil
pastels? I know this sounds pathetic, but this is my reality.
How about torn paper collage? you get some neat gradations of color when the
faded construction paper is torn. Have them tear the white paper and use the
oil pastels on the edges then use their finger to rub the pastel edge onto
part of the collage. Landscapes work great for this technique. Maybe you
could get your hands on some old magazines and have them incorporate some
type of photomontage. Best of luck. My first year teaching all I had were
coffee filters and paper plates and broken crayon ends...you make do, it will
work out! Keep the faith.
