The students are studying the symbols of the United States of America in the humanities program. We looked at several images and talked about what symbols were used and what they stood for. We talked about the composition of a piece of art and what a focal point is within the composition. Each student had a sheet of symbols to chose a minimum of 10 images to cut out and create a balanced collage. This project allowed me to assess the scissor skills of each student, how they handled applying glue and offered insight on their sense of design.
