There was an old monster.... Paper Collages with 2nd graders

Second graders have had a blast recently exploring the art of  paper collage by making collaged colorful monsters on a stick.  We were inspired by the collages in the book There was an Old Monster by Rebecca, Adrian and Ed Emberley.

The artistic challenge in this lesson, besides engineering the paper to pop out, or zig zag, or be overlapped was that kids could NOT draw with pencil, pen or crayon, they had to ' Draw with their Scissors" , and just make it up as they went along... in the style of jazz music and Henri Matisse and they did a great job. Hopefully these creations made it home safe and sound.
