“Where I Live” Art Journal Pages

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
“Where I Live” Art Journal PagesMy Art Journal class is focusing on themes that describe their life as they know it. Here is a collage page in my Strathmore Art Journal Kit that I made from old LA street maps.1. To keep young students from cutting shapes that were too large for their book, I precut Thomas Guide maps to 5" squares. They cut squares, rectangles and triangles as needed to make the type of building they lived in. A ground shaped was cut and attached with a glue stick first, then the buildings and simple trees on top.2. A medium tip black marker was used to trace all the edges of the buildings, as well as add smaller details like windows and doors.3. Detail coloring was added with crayon, as well as any desired background. I love how the map lines show through the art!
