Collage in the Classroom

A couple months ago I received an email from Eric, an artist and art educator in NYC. He had a few questions about my collage technique and told me that he was doing a collage unit around my work and the idea of "painting with paper."

Yesterday he sent me the activity guide he used as well as several pictures of student collages. It made my day seeing some "painting with paper" work that was done in the classroom. Take a look at some of the student work, it's very impressive:

The students used Chuck Close's technique of using a grid to make large drawings. Then they collaged on top of their drawings.
