Giant Rainbow Collage

rainbow-collage-1024x492In honor of Earth Day, coming up on April 22nd, I’d like to repost a project from a few years ago. Shown here is the finished rainbow collage, all covered in clear packing tape, trimmed out and ready to hang. Final size, approx. 7 feet wide by 2 feet tall.

To review: Students cut out swatches of color from magazines, and left them in their designated piles under the pinned up roll of paper. I was the “glue master” and glued all swatches down with about a box of glue sticks, taking care to blend the colors. It took four one-hour classes of 24 kids to get this filled out from edge to edge. I love that the kids were engaged with a sense of teamwork, and that I now have another nice piece of art for our school.
