Art and Design - Collage

Class  4 have been exploring collage.

We have looked at the work of Kurt Schwitters, who many say, was the first person to create collage for art professionally. 

Schittwers was a German artist who was born in Hanover. He worked in several genres and media, including dadaism, constructivism, surrealism, poetry,sound, painting, sculpture, graphic design, typography, and what came to be known as installation art.

Schwitters used a lot of the materials in his collages, which he picked up from the streets of Hanover where he lived

Take a look at our Kurt Schwitters style collage which we produced by collecting images which were thrown on the floor like rubbish, for us to find and use, just as Schwitters had done to make his collages.
