Collage Workshop at MVPL

During the third collage workshop at the Mount Vernon Public Library children were able to chose their own collaging materials from a wide assortment of items. Fabric, ribbons, papers, packing materials, plastic netting, bottle tops, and so much more was strewn across the work table. Children pondered the possibilities as they examined the materials. The little girl in the photo above carefully arranged the foil on her cardboard base, then ran back to the materials table to see what else she could find to add to her collage. One child broke the plane of the paper and transformed his collage into a city. Another child made a birthday card with tissue paper hearts and bows. I never get tired of watching the children work. They were excited, and busy creating the entire class.
