You can be creative with stuff you find
In this exercise students will explore creativity by using found images
from magazines. Students will cut out random parts of food, animals,
people. Next they will reasemble into a new hybrid creature. The students
will use layers of clear shelf paper to capture and hold images in place.
Students may also paint over areas and ad extra layers of image and background. The image will be trimmed to size last. Extra effects may
be possible if the students are able to scan and manipulate digitally.
Students learn a collection of random stuff can become image making. They learn about planning, sponteneity, and transparent vs opaque layers. Non-intimidating project with fantasic results.
