David Hockney Style
Photo Collages

I'm so glad I decided to introduce the work of David Hockney to my group of 5th graders. I explained how Hockney was inspired by the Cubist movement in doing his photo collages. Each student could pick their own subject matter and divide it up in sections. They were encouraged to play with the zoom on the lens to get different distances of their subject. I think they came out great! I am particularly fond of the black cat, "Phoebe."
