Remembrance Day Collage Peace Doves


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!
