Intro to Art: Social Commentary Collage
1. Put the finishing touches on an art piece by eliminating as much negative space as possible.
2. Create a statement that identifies the meaning behind objects in my collage
We’ve finally made it. As you finish up your collage today, I want you to try to remember back to the idea (it shouldn’t be too hard) that you came up with for your social collage. Does the meaning still hold some sort of personal value to you? Before you turn it in, on the back, I would like you to create a KEY, that identifies the various items and/or objects you’ve added to your collage. Then, create a statement (1-3 sentences) that gives a reason for WHY this topic is important to you and WHY other people should pay attention to it (the topic). Don’t forget to title your work and identify the materials.
