rex ray shape collage
Fourth graders learned about the artist Rex Ray and his process of making shape collages. They then designed paper using lots of different materials such as stamps, dots, texture rubbings etc. so they would have all sorts of color and texture to choose from, this was the same process of the famous artist. They the cut the papers into geometric and organic shapes and filled a separate piece of paper with overlapping shapes either in a theme or abstract. The objective was to use shapes to make a piece of art and they met this objective beautifully!
