Celebrating? First day of school? Performance jitters? Disappointed? Whatever the feeling, students begin to chill out with a multimedia collage.
Everyone has strong feelings sometimes. Ask students how they deal with them? Do they make music? Talk with friends? Take a walk? Jump with joy? Making this collage will help students think more deeply about an emotional event in your life.
Ask students to choose an emotional event. Think of an event that made you feel strong emotions. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, students write a list of words that describe their feelings. Need to correct spelling? It’s easy to erase and write again!
Students think of a symbol that they associate with their selected emotions. If the emotion was love, one could draw a heart, Encourage students to sketch symbols next to each emotion word.
The events chosen are filled with memories. What do students remember about their events? Students sketch symbols that represent those memories, too.
Students design collages. On white paper, encourage them to sketch symbols in an interesting pattern to design the collage.
Provide colored paper or fabric scraps for students to draw symbols. Encourage the use of colors that are appropriate to the emotion, such as red or pink for love (or anger or envy) or blue for peace. Cut out the symbols with Crayola Scissors.
Use Crayola School Glue to attach the symbols to the collage background.
Provide students with various colors of tissue paper. Ask them to tear small pieces of tissue paper. Mix equal amounts of glue and water with a Crayola Paint Brush. Moisten the areas surrounding symbols with this mixture. Place tissue paper on the moist background. Brush more of the glue over it. Overlap tissue paper slightly for a colorful effect. Air-dry your collage.
Bringing feelings together: Students write a short story about the event that inspired their art collages. Encourage them to use the words on their lists and the symbols on their collages to make the feelings vivid.
