Studio Art 360: Collage and Gallery hanging

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What do you think about when you hear the work COLLAGE? We are going to look at 4 different artists this week and make ONE simple collage each. Della Wells, Romare Bearden, Richard Hamilton, and Kara Walker (began with Pablo Picasso and George Braque).

What kinds of messages might you be communicating with the ideas of collage? How can you throw the normal rules of art making out the window?
