Introducing Collections

Creating Artworks from Collections

Junior festival goers:

Create a collection and arrange it carefully and photograph it.

Older festival goers:

Think about how many collections you already have – photos? music – playlist? clothes? films? books?

 

If you were to create a brochure about your collection, what would it look like? You could use PowerPoint Here, word or a hand written document with images hand drawn or photos and collage stuck in.
