A 10-page printout full of funky, colorful shapes inspired by the art of Josef Albers, Bruno Munari, Henri Matisse, and Geta Brătescu. I developed this resource in collaboration with the guys from Beam Editions. Play Shapes is a great way to get children experimenting with art and design principles such as shape, color, space, and pattern. All you have to do is print them out and cut them up!
A 5-page printable activity full of fun pictures that kids can cut up and use to make new, creative compositions. Made famous by Surrealist artists like Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, and Man Ray, collaging is a great way for children to use their imagination to create original works of art.
