Second Grade Romare Bearden Collages
For this project, the students learned about the connections that can be made between art and music. The students learned about the artist, Romare Bearden, and his jazz inspired collages. We talked about how he used certain colors to create certain feelings and how he showed the musicians' emotions. We then listened to jazz music in class and the students brainstormed ideas about how they can show what the music looks like in their very own collage. After some brainstorming, the students used a variety of papers, including sheet music and drawings of instruments, to complete their jazz collages. Each one is creative and unique.
