Collages from Nebraska eighth graders

Art teacher Jerene Kruse, who took my collage workshop in Beatrice, Nebraska, last November, sent me these images of artwork her eighth-grade students did in her class. These kids did such a good job.

If you're an art teacher and haven't done collage with your classes, I hope you'll try it. They each bring in magazines reflecting their interests. They tear up the images and colors and use a glue stick or white glue to attach the pieces to a piece of card stock or poster board. If they don't like something that has already dried, they can just stick another collage piece on top of it. The shapes and colors in these collages are wonderful. So are the textures some of them made. They should all be very proud of their work.
