This series was designed again by Donna Hugh to give the aspiring artist instruction in how to select and position various materials and objects in order to create pleasing, original collage compositions.
- Lesson 1: Texture Collage
Art teacher Donna Hugh begins by showing examples of materials you will want to collect. These may include bark, dried grasses, seeds, twigs, buttons, sandpaper, feathers, wire, and cork. Arranging some of these materials in pleasing layers and formations, she creates a collage that emphasizes texture.
- Lesson 2: Theme Collage
Donna uses a realistic picture for her theme. Then she begins to create her collage by choosing and positioning materials around this theme. Some of these materials, such as colored papers and textured objects, she has used in earlier lessons. To these she adds other materials, ending with an artistic and beautiful theme collage.
