mondrian collage


A collage is a two-dimensional work of art created with such items as paper, photographs, cloth or found objects.  The art pupil is given construction paper of red, blue, yellow (primary colors) and black.  She is asked to cut the primary colors into squares and rectangles.  The black is to be cut into strips.  After they are finished cutting she will glue them down on a white sheet of paper.  The art tutor will point different ways the composition can be set up.  When the art pupil is finished, she will compare and contrast her collage with the paintings of Piet Mondrian.
