Large sheets of paper, Construction paper, Scissors, Glue sticks,
Markers, Paint Brushes.
The students will create texture on large sheets of paper
using paint applied in various ways. Encourage them to put swirls
dots and use sponges and sticks to create different textures and
patterns. Have them use a large range of colors both warm and cool.
Set these sheets aside to dry throughly. Once the large sheets have
dried completely, the students can cut shapes from the texture painted
page to create images on construction paper. These cut shapes will
be pasted on a new sheet which will form the background of the composition.
Show them pictures in some of Eric Carlo's books. ( It helps to
have a few examples to get them started.) Choose a theme and let
them create their own illustrated page.Let their imaginations do
the work and the results will be beautiful.
