It's in ... No, I Mean, on the Bag!
Arts & Activities, v147 n4 p38-39 May 2010
An inspiring article in a craft magazine spurred the author to attempt a dimensional collage project with high-schoolers. The magazine piece concerned the embellishing of a vintage handbag. Artists have been altering objects for countless years; art teachers can find many fine examples with which to motivate their students. One example is to use a bag and transform it into an art object using cast-off objects. This article describes an art project designed for high-school students to (1) experiment with a variety of art media, tools and techniques while demonstrating thought and care; (2) create an interesting personal work of mixed-media art; (3) know and understand the meaning of the term "collage"; and (4) understand and utilize the art elements and principles of design.
