Celebrating? First day of school? Performance jitters? Disappointed? Whatever the feeling, begin to chill out with a multimedia collage.
Everyone has strong feelings sometimes. How do you deal with them? Make music? Talk with friends? Take a walk? Jump with joy? Making this collage will help you think more deeply about an emotional event in your life.
Choose an emotional event. Think of an event that made you feel strong emotions. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils, write a list of words that describe your feelings. Need to correct spelling? It’s easy to erase and write again!
Think of a symbol that you associate with the emotion you chose. If your emotion was love, you could draw a heart. On your list, sketch symbols next to each emotion word.
The event you chose is filled with memories. What do you remember about the event? Sketch symbols that represent those memories, too.
Design your collage. On white paper, sketch your symbols in an interesting pattern to design your collage.
Draw your symbols on colored paper or fabric scraps. Choose 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 your collage background.
Tear small pieces of tissue paper. Mix equal amounts of glue and water with a Crayola Paint Brush. Moisten the areas surrounding your 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.
Bring your feelings together. Write a short story about the event that inspired your art. Use the words on your list and the symbols on your collage to make the feelings vivid.
