Conversations

Example 1

Example 1

Materials: Paper, drawing materials, painting materials, scissors, glue or glue sticks, magazines for collage, ink pen.

The project can begin with finding two magazine images that will have a conversation or interaction together.  Create a background or space for the images to have their interaction or dialogue by painting, drawing, or creating a collage.

The project can be left as a broad objective.  It can also be modified to fulfill a more defined purpose. For example the dialogue could be about a specified topic such as child parent relationships or the background setting may be more specific such as a school yard.  There are endless possibilities. 

I have attached two different examples.  The first example above is a collage of painted cardboard with two conversing images in a more abstract setting.   The second example to the right is a pencil drawing with ink that has two images conversing in a park.

This art intervention can be used in a variety of settings with a variety of preteen + ages.
