3rd grade artists viewed the work of artist Gale Kaseguma and are currently working on spring inspired tissue paper collages. They are cutting, gluing, and applying tissue paper to design well balanced floral compositions.
They are problem solving during this process and making creative decisions while they work. For example, they are cutting and overlapping layers of lighter colors in order to create more contrast. If their stems are difficult to see, they are adding extra layers too. They are also discovering that they can make new colors by overlapping two pieces of tissue paper. We have mixed colors using paints and oil pastels in the past, but this is the first time they have created new colors using this medium.
Students are brushing Mod Podge onto their work with old paintbrushes. When this glue is dry, their artwork will reveal interesting textures and will have a glossy shine.
See their work in progress in the slideshow above. Expect to see these pieces in our B.A. Artsonia gallery when they are finished.
