Image-Making Art Materials

Image-Making Within The Writing Process® is a collage-based approach to teaching writing in which students create their own portfolios of hand-painted textured papers. These colorful papers became the raw materials for constructing collage images. Through cutting and pasting, students are able to develop their ideas visually, shape by shape, page by page, before setting pencil to paper.

I made all my collage pictures first. Then I did my words. It was easier because when I was doing the pictures, I thought about my whole story. Later, when I looked at each picture, I saw more detail. I wrote more because I saw more things to write about.        – Noami, grade 3
