A Royal Collage Fit for a King!

 This month, Art Adventures students visited the Tsar’s Cabinet exhibit to explore royal decorative arts and porcelain pottery at The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens.  Once they explored the magnificent jars, plates and tea pots, they returned to the studio to create a majestic still life of metallic pottery combining printmaking and collage techniques. 

 The students learned how to create depth by overlapping their vases, teapots, plates and cups in a composition showing a foreground and a background.





The students had a royal good time as they each created their own majestic collage still life and learned about the history and culture of Russia!
