Animals in Art: Magazine Mosaics

8th graders taking Animals in Art have been working on creating magazine collages. They were able to choose any animal, but were encouraged to pick one that is mainly a single color, preferably one that is a primary or secondary color. They learned about analogous color schemes and based on the color of the animal they picked 2 more colors that are located next to it on the color wheel. After printing images of their choice, we spent a couple of days drawing the animals, collected areas of color from magazines to fit their color schemes, and have started to glue the color into place.
