Sixth Grade Sketchbook Design

The first thing we do in sixth grade each year is start off with a collage project. Sixth graders are given a sketchbook for the year and its fun to make it uniquely yours.

We talk about three layers of collage

First the background is glued down

Then a focal point is chosen- either drawn, cut out of a magazine or created from shapes.

Everyone comes up with different colors, images, and design.

The last step is to choose some embellishments.

One of the favorite choices is puff paint.
