Project: Create a collage inspired by the work of Romare Bearden

In this week’s NEU To Do for Kids project, young artists will create a collage from images in old magazines and newspapers, and art supplies found around the house.

This mixed-media project uses the artistic techniques of collage and déchirage to create an abstract mixed-media project inspired by the work of Romare Bearden.
