USA Flag Collage

Ringold-Flag-CollageFaith Ringgold, an African-American artist, is best known for her large story quilts. In 1985 she made a piece titled “Flag Story Quilt” which inspired this collage.
 
 
 
1. To help cut swatches, I gave the students a template to follow, printed on 8.5″ x 11″ cardstock. I passed out several old magazines to have them cut out swatches of red, and black and white type to fill in the stripes and blue swatches to fill in the rectangle. The pieces were attached with glue stick.
 
 
 
2. Students covered the blue rectangle with glue stick and arranged the hole punch circles for stars, as shown.
