Altered Collage

My Art I students are in the process of creating altered collage. Many of the students have had a very difficult time with this task. We researched and then students selected collage artists that inspired them. I believe that the biggest battle that was fought was to get students to understand that collage is not cutting pictures out of magazines and gluing them on the page by overlapping them. Collage is adding found objects, decorative elements, and images to a canvas. Here are a few of the works in progress.

I had a chance to see these. WOW. It so good to see students exercing their imagination instead of asking "what do you want me to do?"
