the owl and the pussycat collage
"The Owl and the Pussycat" collage.
5 and 6 year olds.
This is an excellent poem to read and base art on. I've taken the lesson twice. Teachers and parents sometimes request that their class or child receive a lesson they have seen I've done with another class. I'm always happy to do this as the second lesson is never the same as the first. I modify, smooth over the problem areas and adjust to the needs of students.
The children have drawn what they want their scene to look like. Then they have drawn the components individually on card and cut them out. Each one has had a different treatment. Such as a glitter pussy, a collage owl and a blended crayon boat.
They discussed what an horizon is and put this across their background page. They coloured the sea and sky with wax crayon, then dye. They stuck on their boat and characters.
