Simple Collages Of My Students

A Collage is a poster with many pictures overlapping usually about a topic or theme.

In making a collage, we will need color papers, glue, punch, scissors, pencils or crayons.

First of all, we will have to decide on a theme. Some ideas can be about yourself, sports, favorite foods, hobbies, family, animal, things around us etc........

Secondly, cut or punch the color papers into small pieces.

Lastly, glue one piece by one piece. Overlap the edges.

Below are some "masterpieces" of my students........

Introduction of Collage

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

collage is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. 

A collage may include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty. 

The term collage derives from the French "colle" meaning "glue" This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

What Is Origami

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper. Together, they form the word, "origami." It is an art form that has been handed down from parent to child through many generations. Origami involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding. Animals, birds, fish, geometric shapes, puppets, toys and masks are among the models that even very young children can learn to make in just one sitting.

Did you know that when you practice origami, you are activating your whole brain? It has long been known that origami has many benefits like developing eye hand co-ordination, sequencing skills, attention skills, patience, temporal spatial skills, math reasoning etc. but according to the latest research on the brain and the work of Doctor Katrin Shumakov and Yuri Shumakov, when both hands are engaged, impellent motor impulses activate the language portion of the brain.

Below is a list of just some of the benefits of using origami.
* Reading Skills

Kids Learn Easy Origami

Origami is an interesting hobby and also a wonderful activity in group, as I have got my whole Art class to do it today at school. Origami or the paper folding skill is also well-known for mind developing, therefore the teaching of origami is to develop students' eyes and hands co-ordination so as many other in conjunction with. This is a very suitable skill to teach young students, especially kids underage. It's incredible to watch an ordinary piece of paper transforming into a three dimensional form, and the more complex the design, the more incredible this process becomes...... with only a sheet of paper!

First, we need to prepare color papers, gum, scissors and crayon.

Kids were provided color papers.

Start to fold paper step by step.
