One of the things we like to do at Sidney Preschool is transient art. Transient art is basically collage without the glue. The children make an arrangement of collage items on their mats and then we take a photograph.
Here are some examples of transient art done so far this year:
Here are 3 reasons why I love transient art:
1.the children can adjust and change the arrangement as many times as they like until they come up with the exact design they want; this allows for lots of experimentation
2. we can reuse the materials many times; this means the children can create lots of artwork without using lots of materials
3. it allows opportunities for children to experiment with photography
