Cubomania Still Life

6th Grade Students have been studying Surrealism throughout the quarter and for this project learned about the Surrealist collage technique called “Cubomania.”

Students first drew a still life from observation that focused on a variety of drawing techniques including using hatching and crosshatching to create value.  Once they finished their still life drawing, I photocopied the work of art.  From there, students were asked to cut the copy of their drawing into 9 sections and rearrange them to create a new image.  They were able to add color and more collage elements if desired. The results turned out nicely!
