Collage Insect Art

Let's learn about insects and create collage insect art like Eric Carle!

Class experience

Students will: 
*  Recognize that explorative play with materials can inspire ideas for visual art and design
*  Investigate various properties of tools and materials
*  Understand and use basic insect anatomy vocabulary (head, thorax, abdomen, antennae, wing)
*  Create their own painted papers using various colors and tools 
*  Create their own insects taking inspiration from a well-known artist and author, Eric Carle
This class is such a fun blend of art and science! Children are often very familiar with Eric Carle and his art. They also are quite fascinated with insects. I wanted to offer a follow up art class to compliment my Hungry Caterpillars & Grouchy Ladybugs:  Exploring Story Elements with Eric Carle literature class and this is a perfect fit! It is also a great opportunity to encourage students interest in the animal and insect world, expanding their vocabulary, as well as encourage them to create their own Eric Carle-esque stories based on their new insects. 
* Paints - Tempera, Crayola washable paint, or something similar is ideal as it thick. Watercolors and acrylic do not work well for this project
* Paint brushes - large and small ideal, but not necessary
* Texture tools - examples include plastic forks, toilet paper roll, Playdough tools that create texture when rolled, bubble wrap, bottle caps. Get creative!
* White paper - can be printer or construction. Larger pieces work well for the gluing phase in the second class, but aren't necessary
* Construction paper - for painting, any color, 3 pieces
* Newspaper or table cloth for managing mess ;) Consider a space where you can place painted papers to dry as well. 
* Print out of insect shapes - optional. You can simply free-draw shapes from the images on the screen
* Scissors and glue (glue sticks work well here)

** All paints, brushes, and paper can be purchased on Amazon or at stores such as Target, Walmart, IKEA, Michael's or other craft stores. **
