Collage with Fifth Graders

I volunteer at my local elementary school teaching art in a PTA sponsored program, once a month. Every year I go in and teach six fifth grade classes the art collage and talk about being a professional working artist today.

I show them my work, talk about my education and experience and then let them try their hand at collage.

Check out my Facebook fan page for  an entire album of wonderful work by the kids!


  1. What a delightful panda!!
    kids create the best art!

  2. I teach art masterpiece for my daughters 6th grade class. It is so much fun watching the kids use their imagination, and seeing their creations don't you think?

    How kind of you to share your talent with the kids. I love the heart collage.

    Have a blessed day.

  3. I love watching what they come up with, especially when asked to fit a theme! Yes, I love the heart collage too, she needed a LOT OF PINK paper, even had to take some home to finish!

  4. Peggy, you are right, the kids really are uninhibited and that's what makes it great work!
