BOCES students explore collage

Artist Ira Marcks was at the Oswego County BOCES campus in Mexico for two days in mid-May to work with students in several exceptional education classes on collage murals. Marcks introduced the technique of collage, a style of visual art where the artwork is made from different materials to create a whole new piece of art. Students first colored blank canvases with acrylic paint before gluing magazine clippings to the surface. Each canvas represented a color found on the color wheel. Here, Marcks shows Jaiden Herrington of Darlene Oschsner’s class how to secure magazine clippings to the canvas by brushing glue with a paintbrush.
