Collage-making session at Cody

This past Tuesday during Teen Time at CSAPL, we created collages during Teen Time alongside a famous-but-not-in-a-book-yet collage artist!

Here’s a rundown of this special event.

What we did

First, we looked at some finished collages for inspiration and direction. They looked great! Listening to the stories behind each collage was a lot of fun. We heard about how ripping paper can change the way you look at life, and that you don’t necessarily have to be able to draw in order to be an artist.

Next, we headed over to the magazines in search of our own collage-worthy clippings.

Stack of clippings in hand, we proceeded to assemble them on top of manila paper or a magazine clipping while conversing. We didn’t have to go a single minute without a delightful dose of Elissa’s humor and encouragement.

If you missed out…

You can still create a collage on your own if you want! We didn’t use anything particularly unusual to make ours šŸ™‚

To make sure you don’t miss anything else, you can show up at the next Teen Time for something else fun!



Never mind.
