A) Create a collage in the manner of Romare Bearden. You will need scissors, glue or glue stick, old magazines, newspapers and a sheet of typing paper. Use the scissors to cut out images from the magazines and newspapers. Cut along the contour edge of the images you choose. In choosing your images, consider personal history, childhood memories, and key events. You may include in the collage a photocopied picture of you. Before you glue the images down, play around with the arrangement of the images on the paper. Once you have the arrangement worked out, glue the images onto the paper?

B) A short statement which answers the following questions should be included with the collage; (In the Form of a Word Document) How does the subject matter, artistic effects and cultural influence all work together in your collage to create an effective work of art?
