This presentation includes 107 slides to help guide you and your students through the creation of an art collage that parodies a well-known work of art of their choosing. This all-inclusive Power-point includes numerous examples of both famous works of art (including titles, dates and the artist’s name) as well as examples of how they were appropriated (borrowed and altered versions of the original). It’s really two presentations in one, as the second half of the presentation transitions into the art of collage. Numerous famous collage artists and their work are shown as well as everything you need to know about collage. Plenty of finished student examples are shown which illustrate possible solutions to this project having seen this same information. Also included is a worksheet to be printed and shared with the students so that they can stay engaged as they follow along with the presentation filling in the blanks and short answers along the way. A grading sheet, list of materials, needed definitions and even tips and best practices for success on this project are all included. I trust your student will enjoy this project as much as mine did. Enjoy!
