This assignment is a fun way for students to express themselves unconventionally. Students will learn a bit about the counter-cultural history of collage/assemblage and can be presented with many different ideas, models and materials. I have a vast supply of collage materials and can modify the assignment for any classroom subject. Collage is a wonderful tool to display a concept visually for students who are and aren’t usually so inclined.

Katherine LeBlanc is an artist and teacher in Whitehorse. After studying art and education at Brock University she travelled through Canada and other countries teaching children of all ages Visual Art and Music alongside life and language skills. Originally from Ontario, she has taken an extended interest in the Yukon and its culturally and socially diverse community, living and working here for 3 years. The majority of her visual art work is with paint. Whether it's a small-scale canvas or a large mural she believes a successful work of art is a raw representation of the artist's, thoughts, emotions, actions or opinions. As a teacher she tries to model inquiry and self-assessment in order to regain a natural state of inquisition and provide students with the tools to form their own answers. She places an emphasis on authentic products with a specific audience.
