Create a Landscape Collage!
A landscape is a work of art that shows nature and the environment.
1) Gather a sheet of paper, smaller scraps of paper, scissors, and a glue stick. Art tip: Construction paper, magazines, tissue paper, newspaper, and even recycled painted paper make great collage materials!
2) Tear scraps of paper into long strips. Experiment with making your strips as thin as your finger and some as wide as your hand.
3) Arrange your strips of paper on your sheet of paper to create a landscape. Overlap your strips. Which colors should go next to each other?
4) One by one, glue each paper strip to the sheet of paper. Trim the edges of the paper strips that are hanging off the edge.
Is your landscape a real or imagined place? Who might live or visit there? Tell a story about who might be in your landscape.
