Collage, Landscapes, and Economy...

This week our after school students were introduced to simplified landscapes by Georgia O'Keeffe. Students were encouraged to learn economy in representation and created torn paper landscape collages. Class discussion included the use of color value and the distillation of complex forms into simplified shapes. Students also had the opportunity view Matthew Cusick's large collage of crashing waves. Students responded to Matt's artwork and created their own desert and seaside landscapes.
