6th/ 7th Grade Non-Objective Collages

Like the high school Art 1 students, middle school Art 1 students were inspired by the art of Henri Matisse to create a non-objective (not resembling a recognizable object) paper collage as an introduction to the element of shape. Students learned about the difference between geometric and organic shapes, and were encouraged to design a composition that conveyed a sense of balance and unity. Positive and negative space were also considerations to take on, and students were purposefully limited to a color palette of black plus 3 colors of choice to create a sense of emphasis.

The result of this project was approximately 60 9" x 9" cut paper collages that look fantastic whether displayed individually or as a class mural!
