3rd Grade Visual Jazz

The collage work of artist Romare Bearden was recently the inspiration for a 3rd grade project. Romare Bearden is famous for his love of jazz music. After learning about jazz instruments, each student created a collage depicting a person playing the instrument of their choice. The musicians are made of collaged magazine images and the backgrounds are collaged from recycled newspaper and construction paper.
