 Work for all pupils for other curriculum areas 

 

Create a collage for or about your favourite person 

How to do it   

A collage is when you create a piece of art by sticking different materials onto a backing paper. The materials used could be coloured paper,  photos, or pictures.   

Think about:  

  • Who you are going to base your collage on and whether it is for the person or about them. This could be someone in your family or a close  friend 
  • If the collage is about the person then start by listing all the attributes (good things) about them. You might want to base your collage on the  activities that they enjoy doing. When you think of this person, what are the first things that you think about? 
  • If the collage is for the person then you might want to consider all the things that they like. They might have certain interests, like hobbies or  sports or have an interest in something that could form the basis of your collage
  • Completing your collage:
  • Find some paper or card that can serve as your background. This can be of any size but consider how many pictures you want to put on  the collage 

Gather different materials to create your collage. You might want to gather photos of the person, their interests or draw pictures of them  that you could cut out and use. Check with an adult before you cut up magazines! 

  • You might want to colour code the collage with their favourite colours 

Consider how you are going to place the materials on your background to make your collage interesting. You could make an outline where  you fit the pictures inside or create an interesting design  

Alternatively, you could cut up small pieces of coloured paper and create an image using these. For example, if the person likes flowers  you could create their favourite flower using different pieces of coloured paper 

You could make your collage more interesting by adding a poem that you have written about them or some special words to say how you  feel  

 What you will learn   

Completing your collage will help you:  

  • Improve your art skills  
  • Use your imagination
