We use and discard line collage items every day! Start collecting linear materials such as yarn, string, thick rubber bands, straws, ribbons, etc. and cut them into usable pieces.
- Choose five objects
- Make some “lines” touch
- Try a different arrangement
- Glue your favorite arrangement
- When the glue dries, paint the shapes between the lines.
As the collection grows, encourage careful looking and handling. Display representative items in an attractive way so that they are easier to see.
Experiment with different arrangements
Demonstrate drawing lines with the glue to attach linear forms.
Demonstrate holding the glue bottle so that it touches the paper. Move it so that it makes the appropriate kind of line. Place linear forms into the glue and allow them to dry. Paint the shapes between the “lines” if desired.
