A First art collage


V made her first collage from magazine pictures.

What does a four-year-old find interesting? Other little girls and boys her age, food, and balloons. There’s a picture of a family on a beach and when I asked her what she found interesting about it, she said the little girl’s bathing suit. And the woman with little girl in the stroller? She said she liked that they were both wearing funny hats.

I encouraged her to write some letters over the washi taped pieces and helped her assemble some of the illustrations, but she made it clear to me that it was entirely her own project.

Good girl.
