Mini landscape collages inspired by Ted Harrison, 4th grade
Fourth graders looked at the work of Canadian artist Ted Harrison to inspire our mini 5x8” collages - they admired his bold color choices and layers of organic shapes, and we borrowed those ideas, as well as the use of a focal point in the landscape. Students were encouraged to try tearing the paper as well as cutting, and use texture boards to texturize the papers. We also spent a good bit of time experimenting with the placement of our papers before gluing anything down.
