Collage in the Classroom

A few weeks ago I received an email from a high school teacher, Monica, from New York City. She told me that her class had just finished a landscape collage unit and that they had focused on Romare Bearden and my work for their artist focus. Her class analyzed my landscape collages to figure out how I created the work so they could learn from it. They also worked on their own collages inspired from their studies.

Below I've included images that Monica so kindly sent to me. I always enjoy hearing from teachers who've shared my work with their students. It's great knowing that your work can inspire others.

Each collage is about 3"x3"
