Collage for Kids BACK TO TOP
Age: 6-16    5 weeks
No paints or crayons or pencils for this class! Just a lot of imagination, a pair of scissors, a bottle of glue and all of the different colors and textures we can think of to make our works of art. Like a quilt made of cloth, a mosaic made of tiles or a stained glass, beautiful works of art are often made from pieces of materials. It will be a lot of fun to create a different picture each week with the little objects that surround us each day!
