Boat Collage

Standard

This lesson came about because of an abundance of construction paper. Students tore the paper into long strips and used glue to collage them along the bottom of a larger paper. They added sailboats as they chose to and colored the sky with oil pastels.

I tied it in to artists who painted ships like Winslow Homer, Thomas Birch, and Claude-Joseph Vernet. We live near the ocean so many of the students had been on a sailboat but I also showed them pictures of sailboats for reference.
