Grandma Moses Meets Eric Carle
Sutley, Jane
Arts & Activities, v152 n2 p20-21, 38 Oct 2012
This activity features artwork by "Grandma Moses" in which children will learn the picture plane in terms of foreground, middle ground, and background. The teacher also introduces the children to Eric Carle's colorful collaged images in his books. Using the two artists' methods, children experimented and invented new techniques and colors. As the children began to work, it was evident they were enjoying the collage process. To some, it was similar to making paper dolls and dressing them up. For other students who weren't confident about their drawing skills, creating compositions using cut paper afforded them a comfort zone because there were no expectations that the images needed to look lifelike.
