Eric Carle Collage as an Art Form

March 22, 2010

Gorgeous self-portrait.

I had a blast today with the elementary students.  They were finishing up an art project that was very cool.  They had spent the last art class painting sheets of paper in a variety of ways: with flyswatters, marbles, finger tips, bingo marker making lines, dots and other interesting shapes.

After looking at the art of Eric Carle and talking about working with contrasts, repeating colors, harmony and textures, they were ready to start their own creations.  And the creations they made!  Huge spiders, butterflies, birds and pigs, people, robots, aliens and flowers!  Every one was wonderful – the colors and the textures were incredible.
