The French word coller means “to glue”.  Picasso and Braque used the word in
the 1900’s in their paintings. When making a collage you need to FIND papers, shapes, colors.
ARRANGE these on a background.  REARRANGE them to your liking and then glue
them. Interesting edges and layers can make a collage work!
Here are some materials and tools for collage:

  • Construction paper
  • Tagboard (for a stronger backing)
  • Magazines and newspapers
  • Wrappings and other decorative papers
  • Cloth
  • Small objects, such as buttons
  • Stickers and labels
  • White glue
  • Scissors
  • “Edger” scissors
  • Paper punches

Collages can be still life, landscape, portrait, animal, non-objective. What does your collage “say?”

Some types of collage:

  • Paper collage (torn and/or cut)
  • Photo collage
  • Texture collage
  • Tissue paper collage
