Exploring Transparent Collage
Over the course of this Brown Room year we’ve explored collaging with a variety of materials. In the beginning of the year we collaged portfolio tags using warm and cool materials and explored metallic collages on cardboard bases. Today we used our same skills to collage with transparent materials at the light table, but these transparent collage bases had an extra special twist!
“It’s like Mimi’s photo” said Fay looking at the light table, and she was right! We took Mimi’s tracing of the school door, shrunk it, and printed it on transparent paper. Then we loaded the light table up with all kinds of blue and white see-through materials and invited the children to collage onto the St. John’s school door.
All these beautiful collages and more will be hung up for display this Friday during our school birthday celebration!
