Recently, the 6th graders and I looked at work by an artist named Mischa Epstein. We spent most of our time looking at her work with landscapes. The kids each chose a picture from my stash of what used to be calendars. From there, they decided what was most important in their photo and what they wanted to get rid of. I tried to encourage them to use a large variety of materials on their own collages and when we looked at Mischa's work, we discussed the many different methods and materials that she used in her work. Posted here are some projects by the kids that turned out very good!
