ARTIST INFORMATION

Sometimes the things we don't say are just as important as the things we do. Artists Bethany Collins, Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins considered this idea in different ways as part of KMAC Museum's Victory Over the Sun exhibition. What words will you remove for your erasure poetry? What words will you leave behind?

Bethany Collins, Colorblind Dictionary

Activity Sheet

ARTIST INFORMATION

Collage is a technique in which artists combine different kinds of materials together on a paper or canvas. KMAC Museum permanent collection artist Ebony G. Patterson's Behind the leaves and in the bed is a great example of this technique, combining photos, paper, jewelry and other small materials. 

What materials could you use in your collage? Stickers, glitter, leaves, flowers, pieces of fabric, and scraps of paper are all great materials - but we bet you can think of even more! Create your collage and show us in the comments!
