These first grade collages were tons of fun! Look how silly and cute! I have to give some credit to Laura from Painted Paper, a few years ago she made a quick one day collage with cloud clay fish on the day of her arts festival, and I helped her throw them up on the wall... I couldn't wait to make my own! This year, I took it a step further, painted a background on chip board and collaged with painted paper. Then colored cloud clay fish with googley eyes!
When this lesson was being taught, I had a wonderful student teacher who started the project with this book about a fish. It is a book with a good lesson, do not steal! But any book about a fish is a great jumping point!
