What we are doing at the moment.

At the moment we are doing a collage project, where we look at the art upstairs and recreate it with a collage. First we sketch the art work including shading so we know whats on top of what. Then we  recreate the artwork through a collage. There's also the option to recreate the artwork through a painting. The question came up during this project was "Are collages art?" Well my opinion is that it is an art because you're being creative to make pieces of scrap come together and make an art-piece. It's your own creation, so I guess it's a personal question. I see it as another way for a person to express themselves.
