Collage making – gör ett collage

Find some friends of yours. Invite them for tea and smorgas. Have a nice time around the table and then after the teabreak suggest them that you all make a theme art piece. The theme could be Swedish summer or something else. Find some old magazines that you’re done with, glue and some pieces of cardboard. Make sure you have hours and hours to spend on this assignment. You will find it most amusing, so you don’t want to quit.

Leta rätt på några av dina vänner. Bjud in dem på te och smörgås. Ha en trevlig pratstund runt bordet. Efter det föreslår du att ni alla ska göra ett litet temakonstverk. Temat kan vara svensk sommar eller något helt annat. Leta rätt på gamla färgglada tidningar som du inte längre använder, klister och några bitar kartongpapper. Se också till att ni har många timmar att ägna åt denna kreativa uppgift. Tiden kommer att flyga iväg.

How do I know that? Hur kan jag veta det?

Well, me and some painter friends got together and did exactly what I just wrote above.

Ja, mina målarvänner och jag gjorde precis så som jag skriver ovan.

This is the result

We were four grownups (well at least counting by age) and one 12 year old artist. Five of the pieces is grownups work and two of them a young brught artist work. Can you guess which the youngest did and which of them I did?

I denna lilla konstövning deltog fyra vuxna (i alla fall till åldern) och en 12-årig konstnär. Fem av verken har en vuxen som upphovsperson och två tillhör den yngsta deltagaren. Kan ni gissa vilka den yngsta av oss gjorde och vilken jag gjorde?

The tea, smorgas and collage idea came from one of the members in the painter group Pink bucket, Marie Westergren Eklund. You can find her beautiful photographs on her insta.

Iden med te, smörgås och collage kommer från en av målargruppen Rosa hinkens medlemmar, Marie Westergren Eklund. Hennes fina fotografier kan ni hitta på insta.

    1. It was more fun than I first thought. I was all soaked up in the project when I searched for colors and creatures in the magazines that I could use. I had to expand my cardboard to get room for all I found.
