Fun Collage Lesson idea - Narrative ART
- Dear Art Educators,
Mike Sacco shared his "Vintage Collage" art on his
site. He has promised to submit his lesson plan to
Incredible Art Department
Credit to the lesson goes to Breanne Soviero and her
former coop teacher Louise Millman for allowing Mike
to adapt their collage lesson. The kids loved this
project. Breanne may be submitting her lesson too.
Mike actually used old LIFE magazines - bought from
eBay and some gifted to him from Louise (also a
Here is another twist to the lesson...."Desperate"
Fine ART Collage. Watch "Desperate Housewives" (Sunday
Night ABC)- videotape their intro to show your
students - it is all fine art "cut and paste" so to
speak. You will recognize all of the fine art examples
they use. Show the clip to your students - then
introduce just a wee bit about each artist/art work in
the video clip.
Here is the project:
Students would use old Smithsonian magazines - and
other magazines - cheap books - etc....any images they
can find of fine art - to make a narrative piece. They
will make a collage of fine art images - cut and paste
to make a new story. They will write what the story is
with this new arrangement of images.
Also see the work of Barry Kite - all cut and paste
collage - using fine art and other images.
Lots of very fun stuff to see on his site.
BTW - Barry wants kiddies "stealing" his
ideas....obviously he has "stolen" a lot of ideas
along the way too. DO create a PowerPoint of your
favorites with Barry's blessing (I did ask him
Check out Artist with Abandoned Car for example:
You could also have the kiddies get some of their
images online to use for this project.
I have LOT of stuff to offer anyone who wants to do
the Fine Art Narrative twist. Reply to me OFF LIST.
I can not give it all to you for free....postage will
have to be covered - along with a little extra $.
Your only other obligation would be to submit one or
two works of student art using these resources - to
add to the lesson plan.
