Nov. Pk-K Collage Techniques: Funny Faces and artist Eric Carle!
For the month of Nov., the youngest students in PK-K were taught basic collage techniques. They used scissors and glue to arrange the shapes into realistic pictures. The first project was about the features of the face. The students were taught to overlap and layer the pieces so create the face, then add a pattern using lines around their artwork. This lesson had many priciples of design, elements of art and important techniques that will serve them well for their artistic careers!
The next lesson was using Eric Carle's book The Very Hungry Cattepillar. They used precut shapes to arrange the cattepillar on the tree limb, being sure to create a pattern again for reinforcement of previous lessons. The students saw a video on several Eric Carle stories, then I read the book to them. They sure enjoyed it! Mr. Mac
