Dive Into Mixed Media Collages

Hey, artists! You’ve probably made collages before, but for a mixed media collage we will use lots of different materials in the same collage. Let’s explore all the things we can turn into art and look at some examples before you make your own. All you need is a canvas of sorts (ex. piece of paper, cardboard box), some glue or tape, and whatever other material you feel like putting together!
Mix media collages can be especially fun when you have to find creative ways to build your collage. Look for old magazines and papers to start, but then try adding something unique into the mix! You can even use materials from your yard.
After you finish your awesome mixed media collage, take a picture, upload it to social media, and tag the Topeka Library in your post! We would absolutely love to see your artwork.
Put on some tunes, get creative and have fun!
