Seasons of Collage

Hi, it’s Moriah here and today I am showing you four different collage techniques to represent the four seasons.

Before starting, I want you to write down what comes to mind when you think of each season: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. What colors come to mind? What images? Do you think of a summer holiday or a childhood memory? Write those thoughts down and think about those images when you are gathering your material.

For me, summer is about festivals, lots of green and lush scenery, while fall is about the color orange and the turning of the leaves. Spring is about flowers and rebirth, while winter is about ice skating and the glint of sun on snow. Try to turn those memories during the season into images and colors that you can convey in your art.

For this tutorial you will need: 

  • Magazine images
  • Markers
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Different types of paper in a variety of different colors.

Action Items 

  • Create four different collages to represent the seasons using the techniques in the video.
  • Make a list of the colors associated with each season. What colors do you connect with the most? Make a page about it.
  • Create a collage of your favorite seasonal memory, such as apple pie at Thanksgiving, Christmas morning, or camping under the stars in the summer.
