Age Group : 9-11,11-14,14-16
Subject : Art & Design
Topic : Art history, Natural world
Keywords : 56 Group Wales, Piet Mondrian, Joseph Cornell, Abstract Collage, Neo-plasticism,
Notes : Pupils could look at examples of Mondrian's work and discuss its features and characteristics. Pupils could create abstract collage themselves relating it to a specific theme eg 'the sea' and think about how to make it communicate a sense of the sea without being too literal a representation. Pupils could collect repeated collage materials like small circular pieces of wood or other repeated shapes and stick them to cardboard to make a collage. Pupils could research other examples of artists' work who create abstract collage. Summary of Giardelli's life on Arthur Giardelli Obituary.
