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
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
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
