Art Adventure: Linear Collage

This project is simplified from last week's, but I love this type of collage too. What can I say? I'm in a collage mood right now. :)

Linear Collage

  • any image, a photo or picture cut from a magazine
  • blank paper, any color
  • scissors
  • glue stick

This project is super simple, but the results are very interesting. Essentially we are going to stretch our picture.

Find an image you like and if there is a lot of background, cut that away.

Then cut the image in straight strips, either vertical (up and down) or horizontal (side to side). You need to pick which direction will stretch your picture best.

You can mark the strips with a pencil and then use scissors or use a paper cutter (parental supervision with that even though it has a safety guard).

Keep the strips in order as you cut them.

Then glue them down on your blank paper in order, leaving space between each strip.

It's as easy that. Animals can be especially fun images for this type of project.
