I am a huge fan of Cassie Stephens… the amazing art teacher that posts videos and lesson plans for kids and families, especially during this difficult time. I was browsing her site for ideas, and came across the concept of collo-graphs, cutting and pasting scenes with cardboard, to be able to make rubbings and prints. I worked with a friend and her family, and we decided to imagine scenes of places that we would like to be, instead of confined in our apartments. We created a field of flowers, a desert scene, and riding a huge wave in the ocean. These collo-graphs can be simple enough for young children to create with just a few shapes, and more complicated for older children and adults to stay interested as well. It is also a way to introduce some magic, in a way that everyday objects can be transformed into art making materials. This is powerful for children and adults, who might think that they need fancy art making materials to create.
