A collage can include ‘natural’ objects like leaves, pebbles or newspaper clippings but Baker Ross has some great materials to give kids a helping hand to make a collage in the classroom or at home.
Teachers and parents know that children love the artistic licence that collage crafts give them – combining different things which wouldn’t normally find their way into a work of art! We have collage ideas which can help young ones hone their colour co-ordination skills; can they choose the best colour thread and beads to go with the coloured sand, crystals, fabric petals or tiles they have glued to their picture?
Kids can have such creative fun with tactile materials such as fabrics and feathers, while jewels, glitter and sequins always catch the eye in the art-room and on-display at home.
Collages are great ways of marking the changing of the seasons; be sure that kids include some leaves in their autumn collages and some pebbles or sand in their summer ones! Check out our range of collage materials for further inspiration!
