2nd grade Community Collages

The second graders are ending the year by putting the final touches on their community collages.  We reviewed the definition of collage by looking at the artworks of Romare Bearden.  We also talked about his life, his influences, and his style of art.  The students spend two days on the cutting and gluing, really focusing on ending the year with good craftsmanship.  Finally, they were permitted to carefully add words and visual texture with the Sharpies.  I LOVE looking at each interpretation of a community and what they wanted to see in their community.
Great job, sweet students!
