Grade 5 students recently completed colorful collages showcasing animals from across the United States. Abby created a beautiful grey fox.
She shares this reflection about her artistic process:
Overall, I think I had a good experience making this collage. It was a little hard to find the right colors that I needed. What I did to get through the challenge was improvise to find a solution that worked even though it took a long time. The part of the process that I enjoyed the most was collaborating with my friends and finding a way to put the scraps onto my picture. I like the way my piece came out because I am not naturally talented at collaging, but I still was able to do this successfully. The part of the artistic process that surprised me the most was that we spent so long drawing our animals. Now that I look back at it, I think it was very important that we spent so long drawing because we need to know all of the spacing and color details.
