Make a collage

Challenge your child to create an artistic collage

Getting started

To get started with collage, all you need is some source material, a few tools, and an eye for composition. You will need: 

  • the backing for your collage – paper or board
  • scissors 
  • adhesives – UHU glue sticks, or staples or tape
  • paint – which can also act as a glue
  • collage material – newspapers, magazines, tissue paper, wrapping paper, handmade and art papers, corrugated paper, foil paper and fabrics.

Once you have everything ready, take time to plan your composition.  Lay out all your elements first before attaching them, move them around until it looks right

Have fun!
