  • A group of children are working together as a team to complete a giant collage at the beach.

Ideas for use in class
  • This is an excellent clip to show children in preparation for a giant art piece based on an educational visit. This clip could also be used to demonstrate collage methods, or as an introduction to observational drawing. It could be used as a basis for the children evaluating their own work and the work of others. The class could talk about other materials that they could have included on the collage and then create their own seaside collage.
