Art and Design KS1 / KS2: Creating a collage landscape

Artist Emma Majury makes a collage of two contrasting landscapes, using paper, plastic, card, fabric, cotton wool, feathers and leaves among other materials.

She gives advice on making the best use of texture and colour, and using your imagination to make different materials represent real life objects.

When finished, the collage can either be glued down, or you can take a photo to keep a record of the art work.

Emma finishes with some suggestions for whole class collage projects.

Experiment with different textures, man-made and natural, to create specific effects.
