How can I differentiate in art?!

    I am going to be observed in an art lesson teaching a Y2 class about collage. I was wondering if anyone could suggest some ways I could differentiate.

    Thanks in advance.

    cutting out ability? colour matching? shape matching? fitting shapes together? having a 'theme' (like all the faces, or all the dresses)? Tbh I have no idea.....

    I would talk about layout, neatness, choosing the right colours etc. Maybe talk about blending dark colours to light?

    I would focus on proportions of the drawing and line weights.

    You could differentiate by providing lower ability students collage pieces already cut, and allow higher ability students to cut for themselves. Provide a template for the lower ability students to work on, or a WAGOLL.

    Provide pegs or tweezers for any child with difficulties with fine motor skills.
    Gardening magazines are good. I have decoupagd a box with gardening cut outs. I also arranged some in layers of colour in my art book.
    You could differentiate with texture too.
