ROMEARE BEARDEN MUSIC COLLAGE
The 2nd grade students learned about the life and artwork of Romeare Bearden through a PowerPoint. They learned that he was very interested in jazz music and this influenced his art. We discussed the many different instruments that there are in a Jazz Band. The students also reviewed what a collage is because Romeare Bearden overlapped fabric, photos and paint to create beautiful collages inspired by music. Students were able to create a music collage using the piano keys pattern for their boarder and designing their own guitar. Then they overlapped musical notes and sheet music. Finally we reviewed the various types of lines and students had to fill the rest of their negative space repeating different colors of lines.
