Newspapers are low budget craft materials. You can still do a lot of things with it. For tinkering, use mainly the text sections. In the absence of a “regular newspaper” you can also use a “house to house” newspaper. The idea is to make a sheet with newsprint text. You use this to create an “autumn leaf shape”. However, you also go from “loose” here. The intention is to create your own creation by means of colour, lines, doodles, dots. So it is inspired by autumn but it goes more in the abstract direction. So an assignment you can go many ways with. If you find it difficult, you can use this form below as a mold. Make a collage on the wall of all the different pieces, then you immediately have a super cool decoration with a nod to autumn!
This template can be used to have a form to create your newspaper art work.
First, save this image to a folder on your computer. Only after that it can be printed out.
