Making a collage needs imagination. Children are great at imagining and creating. Having known the importance of imagination, especially in coming up with new ideas and inventing, this course focuses on imagination and imaginative inquiry (asking “what if” questions). In this class, we choose a topic (e.g. emotions, identity, happiness, friendship, …), explore it together, and then make a collage. We use the simplest materials such as magazines/newspapers, plain/colored papers, fabric, buttons, natural items (such as leaves, sticks, etc.) to create a collage.
