…many months ago I checked out a book at the library about vintage collages. I fell in love with the eccentric nature of the collages and HAD to try them with the residents. These are two examples from google…
We have done them before and revisited the activity again today. It almosts goes to show that I don’t always need to spend MASSIVE amounts of money on activities for the residents. I need to bring home my original collage. it was fun to put big heads on little bodies or give men zebra legs…. today one of my residents said, “I don’t understand! Why is this so relaxing?”
Well, here are some of the art that was created. The pink background was made by my favorite resident Tania. she signed the back, “Laura, Just push back the beads and hands til its where you want it. Love T.” She knows I am depressed about turning 27 so she is talking about the hands of time. She is a big hippy and I love the way she thinks and processes information.
This is my piece of art…. The bugs/flies have 3D wings… kind of creepy looking…
What the resident said is true…. cutting paper and pasting it together is suprisingly relaxing… doing this activity, I do not even mind the mess we make!
