Fly, Soar, Flutter, Squirm, Zoom…


Second Grade Flying Insect Collages, with verbs….except for the kiddos who didn’t make a flying insect…except for the few who chose a preposition or adjective.  Haha!

We are focusing on using lots of recycled materials around the art room this year.  The backgrounds are donated scraps of matboard.  We also used old, obsolete textbooks, dictionaries,thesauruses, handpainted collage papers and cereal boxes.

I love the charm of the text (from recyced cereal boxes) juxtaposed alongside beautiful hand painted papers.  Students looked at the work on illustrators who use this combination and created charming, whimsical collages.

Enjoy the work of Wilder Second Graders.
