Multi Media Collage

My fifth graders have just started their Multi Media Collage and I just had to post our first steps!!
The students have created their backgrounds already and will add their decorations and photos this week and next week! 
I cannot wait to see all the creative ideas they have with this project!! 
Here are the steps

Students created the background for their multi media collage using neon tempera paint and sponges on HEAVY watercolor paper

Image result for golden acrylic gel medium semi gloss
 1. paint the image printed on xerox paper with tempera varnish or acrylic gel medium ( I used the tempera varnish becauase I had some already)

2. place it in the area you want and roll with brayer or rub gently all over with your hand

3. let dry completely.

4. use a sponge to gently wet and then rub the white paper away and VOILA! Your image apears on the painting

 5. Use old books to cut out shapes and oil pastels to make a stencil positive negative effect

6. Review the rules of composition
never in the center, not on the bottom of the page, make it big, make it touch three sides of the paper, and use overlapping for depth 

7.Use stamps and paint to embellish and add layers

Here is another exaple I made using the process above


  1. Very nice creativity art. Thank you for sharing it. My son is also very much interested for drawing and painting and wants to improve his creativity skill. So last week I took his admission in Euro Art Studio which locate & serve for teens between 4-17 throughout the New Jersey, USA. It offers Art classes for children and teens in a wide range of mediums and by a certified Art teacher as well as working artist. I think this is the best place for him.

  2. WOW this is really colourful post. I wish you all the best for your project. I am sure that kids are sure to amaze.

  3. Are the stamps that they used purchased or "homemade" by the kids? If they're created, what kind of process do you use?

  4. Wow very nice post . I am very much interested in arts , drawings n painting . This post made me able to creat my own collage pictures. Plus it could b nice gift for friends . Good memories can be presented them in a great way
