Art Camp for Kids 4 (tissue collage)
The last project we did in my week of teaching art camp was based on Eric Carle's work: Carle works with tissue paper; he paints strokes on it. So to begin, we played with tissue paper, creating third colors by overlapping two. (below) Then the kids planned to make either of my examples--a caterpillar or a ladybug. (or bee, butterfly or firefly) After drawing their bug with pencil, they painted what colors they needed, painted onto tissue paper: The next day they cut the pieces from the painted tissue papers that were now dry. And they assembled their bugs!: In this particular Carle book (below), he has a lot of lettering as well, which is what inspired the letter cut-outs and stories that we added. One of the best parts of the week is the reception for parents on the last day! Here is one picture of all their projects displayed! Thank you so much for visiting! Continued in next posts!
