Heart Collage



A simple lesson designed for younger students. Perfect for Valentines or Mothers Day.


The students will create an original collage using a variety of materials.


I used Haring images from webshots.com that I downloaded to display on my TV when the kids walked in the art room as a focus. It is nice to have a computer with Internet access that is hooked up to a TV.

I used a digital camera and took photos of random student art. Then I created a Power Point presentation and inserted each photo. I printed out each slide from the Power Point, laminated it and bound it to make a book!
