Identity Collage – 3rd through 5th Grade

Identity Collage with magazines!

Students looked at images in my presentation on many Black artists including Wangechi Mutu and others who are doing exciting work in contemporary collage. I also showed them Hannah Hoch, a Dada collage artist. These inspired them to create a choice of a free form layout identity collage or one in the shape of the shadow tracing of their head.  We talked about composition and selecting images that represent themselves and their identities.
