Magazine Collage

magazine collage artThis has to be one of my most favorite collages any of my students have ever made.

I just love how funny it looks, and how the head head fits the skirt so well, and that the collar turns into a belt on the skirt. I must admit that after posting this, a few readers took issue with the image as they read the dog to somehow be insulting. I just think it makes a funny picture, and think the 4th grader who made it thought as much too. Nothing more, nothing less.

 

MATERIALS

  • Drawing paper or journal page
  • Old magazines
  • Scissors

DIRECTIONS

  1. Students are instructed to look for two images in a magazine that they can combine to make something new.
  2. After the images are found, they are cut out and glued to the paper.
  3. Time permitting, additional background images are added with a black marker.
