A trip to my local craft store inspired this texture filled collage. It all started when I saw the cow print flannel. I decided that I had to incorporate it into an art project for my classroom. I added a few other textural materials, and came up with this barnyard collage.
I am looking forward to seeing how the children use will these items, when they are given the opportunity to create their own. I hope that you all will have fun creating your own barnyard collages.
As an added note, I have found that reading books about the farm and life in the barnyard, makes this a more meaningful art project. A favorite of the children’s is Barnyard Banter by Denise Fleming.
