Art Workshop: 3-D Paper Collage

  •  Program Goals
    • Drop-in program for all ages
    • Experiment with art techniques and supplies
    • Build fine motor skills
    • Attendance: 20
  • 8x12 white construction paper, cut into halves
  • Paint cups (tempera and biocolor) and brushes
  • Paper towels, heat tool
  • Cardboard (squares left from a different program)
  • Scissors, glue
  • Aprons
  • I adapted this from Art Workshop for Children by Barbara Rucci
How it works
  • Show kids how to fan fold the paper, encourage them to paint lightly. Blot dry with paper towels or use the heat tool (it's basically an extra hot hair-dryer).
  • When their pieces are dry, they can glue them to the cardboard to create collages
  • 9-11-18
    • Attendance: 25ish
    • Notes: Everyone was done by about 5:30. It went well and was crowded but not cramped. I think a narrow table for the supplies would be good - we've got an old wooden one in the basement but it needs to be cleaned/painted/sealed.
