Hockney-Inspired Photocollage
Wenger, Gina
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v106 n3 p36-37 Nov 2006
A few years ago, the author was introducing her students to David Hockney's "Pearblossom Highway" photo collage, when she decided to try his technique herself. It turned into an assignment that her students love and request. Hockney states that "Pearblossom Highway" gives "a sense of closeness to everything yet at the same time depth can be achieved." In his photo collages, Hockney moves around a space in order to show an object in movement or as people see it when they move or interact with it. After teaching this lesson for several years, the author has come up with a series of steps and hints for students. However, she strongly suggests that the teacher create an example because the most difficult part is getting started once the photographs are in hand. (Contains 1 online resource.)
