For the last project of the year my K1 Kiddos played around with the starting stages of collage. We started by watching the Movie: Monet
Then they painting a piece of 9x12 paper with different colors of blue and purple tempera cakes creating movement in overlapping to create their pond. The next class they cut out bean shaped lily pads and used tissue paper(twisting the little square pieces on the back of their pencils) to create pretty little flowers to go on top of them. We overlapped the two colors of green and then glued the little flowers on top and then onto the pond and they were done! Very quick and fun project for the end of they year! Great way to use up old pieces of used green paper too!
A Few Samples:
Students were asked to have at least 2 big lily pads but if time allowed or they worked to small they could add more to their pond.
