Mark Hearld - collage birds project

I love the work of Mark Hearld and wanted to use some of his ideas at work with Year 5 and 6. Here's a link to a video introducing all the aspects of Mr Hearld's work and his inspiration. Click on the image below to watch.

I love these birds and wanted to create them with pupils. I made a template, created some paper/ materials to collage with and my daughter and we set to work and experimented.

We made a range of painted papers.
You could use old books too, painted, 

aged or as they come.
We were inspired by Mark's birds and
were happy with the results.

Here's what Year 6 made, the talented bunch.

If you are feeling inspired then a good place to explore Mark's work further is through his Work Book


  1. GREAT WORK glad you found the birds inspiring!

    1. Thanks Mark - pleased this got through to you. Alli :)
