Student Works by WIlliam Paterson Univeristy Pre-Service Teachers

These art works are created by my Creative Arts and Early Childhood Literacy Class,  that I co-teach with Dr. Janis Strasser.  Torn black and white paper collage is not only easy, inexpensive, and highly creative, it is also guaranteed to create interesting art works!  
I use the article I wrote about collage LINK and stress this type of collage is inherently linked to literacy via narratives, poems, and collaborative story telling exercises that can accompany it.  One book that always comes to my mind to use with this collage making activity is It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw LINK
