This month gave me the opportunity to demo my collage process and create with the students at Cherokee Elementary in Paradise Valley, Arizona. What a great group of kids, each student helping me choose the perfect piece of paper and find its appropriate spot on the canvas.
Typically a large piece can take a month to complete. With a little prep work ahead of time, we were able to finish two large collages in one day! One piece to auction off at their Art Walk fundraiser that night, as well as another to be given a permanent home in the school. I learned a lot working so fast! And each piece turned out beautifully, hopefully inspiring creativity in all these blooming artists!
