Artwork A collages

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on September 14, 2012

in Artwork Collages, Circle Time, Creative Art, Exploring Artwork A's

As part of our focus on the letter Aa, we saved some of our group artwork, created the week before, for the children to use in a variety of ways..

Since the group artwork didn’t belong to any one student, we let it dry then cut it up into small strips of paper and saved it for our circle time discussion on the Letter Aa…

During circletime, the children used the artwork to form up their own uppercase letter A’s…

We figured out that in order to make an uppercase letter A with our artwork, we would need at least three strips of artwork…

Once each child had at least three strips of artwork, they went to work seeing if they could form up an uppercase A on the floor…

For the most part, the children easily formed up their letter A’s and then we headed off to our centers where we could now create our own artwork collages…

At the table, the children found more artwork to create their own artwork collage…

The children use the artwork to create their collages…

Some of the children preferred to cut up the artwork even more…

And as the children worked, each artwork collage resulted in its own unique design…

If your classroom is like mine, you probably end up with random easel paintings or group art throughout the year that never end up going home.  Try saving these pieces and then recycling them into the art experience or center at a later time…

Recycled artwork is great for a little cutting practice, gluing, collage making, or even painting on top of the already painted artwork…

And the children may just think of something you never thought of to do with those random pieces of artwork!
