Every year I try to design a new project for Remembrance Day. This year I decided on a torn paper collage of doves as I found some textured paper that I'd had for years and
hadn't gotten around to using.
On 11x17" large heavy paper, Grade 4 - 6 students sketched out a dove shape.
Then they cut it out.
Each student then took a square of the textured paper and tore it into
rectangular feather-like shapes.
Using white glue and a paintbrush , they collaged the paper
onto their dove shape.
Finally, they added a beak and a eye made from construction paper.
I love the soft textured effect of these birds!
Some Grade 4 - 6 results!
