Choice Based Art
BASA Art Class Week 6
While reflecting on the work that has been created the past five weeks, I realized the students had not spent much time in the collage center. I decided to focus on collage for the "idea of the week" and shared a variety of images with the class. We talked about what the word "collage" means and how Pablo Picasso is credited with making the first modern collage.
We also discussed the surrealists and the ways that they used collage. I read part of a document from the Dali Museum that can be found here: http://thedali.org/education/docz/LessonPlan3-CollageCollege.pdf
Two other artists we looked at were Henri Matisse and his paper cut-outs and Jen Stark and her paper sculptures.
|Henri Matisse- The Horse, The Rider, and the Clown|
|Jen Stark - Microscopic Entrance|
