Walk this Way-Warm/Cool Collages
Fifth graders learned to differentiate warm colors from cool colors. To see the impact of warm colors vs. cool colors the students drew one image and copied it to another paper. One drawing was colored with warm colors, the other cool colors. When both drawings were completed, we sliced them into 1 inch strips. Students then folded a 18X6 oak tag paper into an accordion fold. The pieces of the drawing were glued down in a pattern: warm, cool, warm, cool onto the paper accordion. Our finished artwork will become an optical illusion. Walking towards the artwork you will see one image and walking back by you will see a different one. Here are some pictures of the work in progress. We are almost finished!
