California Collage


My experience with collage is that students enjoy them, but often have trouble filling a paper in one class session. I thought that if they all work on one large project, they might stay on task a little better.
I’ve made a large multi-page California template that measures about 30" tall. The file may be downloaded HERE.
1. To make my collage, I first printed out and trimmed all the pages. I laid out the pages as needed, taped them together, and cut away the excess.
2. I searched old magazines for green swatches of color for the forest areas of the state, brown for the desert and attached them with a glue stick. The outer pieces should overlap the edges.
3. When the map was completely covered, I turned the work over and trimmed along the white edge of the paper.
4. I used a black Sharpie to trace around the outer edge.
