Kindergarten Owl Collage Objective To give students the opportunity to practice their ripping and cutting skills; practice drawing large shapes and using liquid glue. Materials 12"x18" black paper assorted brown colored paper green paper - 12”x3” per student yellow paper (for eyes) orange paper (for beak and feet) pencils (white pencil also) scissors Elmers glue glue dot practice sheet Make sure the students put their name and date on every project!
Procedure (print this page and the next two pages to teach from) Step 1 : Review the word “collage” and what it means. Collages of a certain type can include the following: 1.Paper collage – One of the more simple forms of collage. Various pieces of paper gathered and put together to create a unique collage only from paper products. 2.Photomontage – whether done by hand or with the help of a computer, a photomontage is a collage of pictures or photos. 3.Wood collage – Create from pieces of wood, whether it be from scraps, old furniture, crates, barrels, house parts, driftwood, branches, sticks, bark, etc. We will be creating an Owl Collage. Owls are nocturnal - they are active at night and rest during the day. Ask the students why we will make our collages on a black paper background. Step 2: Create a simple branch Use the 12x3” piece of green paper. Draw a simple branch outline - think of an arm and fingers at the end. Careful - do not make to thin. Cut the branch shape - use glue on the side of the pencil lines so when place down on the black paper you won’t see the pencil lines. Put aside. write student’s names on back with white pencil
Step 2: Draw the outline of the owl on the black paper Draw lightly the outline for the owls body. Use the WHOLE paper. Don’t worry about erasing any lines you don’t want - the eraser marks will be less desirable than the pencil lines. Put aside. Step 3: Rip and cut brown paper. Have the students rip and cut different size pieces - large pieces for the outside of the owl body - to smaller sizes for the center. Put aside. Step 4: Gluing the body First - practice with “Glue Dot Sheet.” This will show the students how much glue they will need and keep from wasting too much. Start with the body of the owl. Work from the outside - in to the middle Start with larger pieces of ripped or cut paper Overlap your pencil outline with the brown paper. Overlap the glued pieces Don’t use too much glue - (too much will warp the paper and too little won’t stick - start with little dots) Put a few dots of glue per piece of ripped paper Step 5: Gluing the body When the body is done, start the head of the owl. Working from the outside - in a radial design Step 6: The details Use the orange paper for the feet and the beak, yellow for the eyes. To get the circle shape for the eyes, trace around a cup or paint bottle. Use a black marker for the center of the eye. Just a dot - no need for eye lashes or eye brows here.
