Scarecrow and Crow Paper Collage

Bridge class spent the last week of October in the art room, working on a seasonal scarecrow and crow picture. Using patterned paper, construction paper and flattened drinking cups for the crows, the students practiced their collage skills. They first created a background by sponging blue and yellow paint on to a piece of paper. The students then pieced their scarecrow together by firstly arranging the pre-cut pieces of paper and then gluing them into place. Each student traced and cut out a scarecrow head and drew a face. They continued to explore lines by drawing different kinds of lines on the sleeves of their scarecrows. The last step was painting flattened, drinking cups black to resemble crows and then gluing them to their composition as if perching atop the scarecrow sleeves. Great job Bridge! 🙂
