Recycled Paper Collage

Laura ~ Year Six

This artwork was created during a unit of study on Collage. In this unit, the students were encouraged to challenge their own traditional perceptions of collage as an artistic medium and explore the more modern and sophisticated ways it can be used. In this activity, students were only allowed access to recycled materials such as old magazines, newspapers, used wrapping paper, product packaging and found papers. The canvas that they were asked to scale their work to was a metcard (train ticket), which is similar in size and shape to a credit card.
