Collage Technique
  • Remember Perspective Rules








to create collage
To Create Collage:
  • Add layers starting from the back to the front.
  • Arrange cut images, shapes and textures before gluing down.
  • Don’t glue as you go in case you change your mind.
cut carefully

Cut Carefully

Cut around the contours of the object.

You can also cut the shape out of a solid color for a silhouette



Visual Textures such as sky, water, ground, hair can be created by using the Mosaic Technique of cutting up the right color and texture into small pieces and assembling into one larger area.



My old man’s a white old man

And my old mother’s black.

If ever I cursed my white old man

I take my curses back.

If ever I cursed my black mother

And wished she were in hell,

I’m sorry for that evil wish

And now I wish her well.

My old man died in a fine big house.

My ma died in a shack.

I wonder where I’m going to die

Being neither white nor black?
