Collage is an art of cutting and pasting papers, fabrics and other media onto paper or canvas. To enrich student’s experience in pictorial composition through the handling of new materials, we planned a collage making activity for class II on the topic ‘Rainy Season’.
Children’s divergent thinking was challenged when they were presented with an array of flat material. They had to decide what to use and how best to use the material to express themselves. We witnessed the usage of various skills in the collages made by our kids.
Children enjoyed the activity a lot because it was a completely new concept for them.
