I use this icebreaker to get my illustration students to loosen up and interact with one another at the beginning of a lesson.
Participants collage their own monster onto an empty page by copying, pasting, rotating and resizing ‘monster parts’ (fragments which I uploaded as PNGs).
The monster parts are duplicated in case a participant accidentally forgets to copy an element.
Background elements are locked (only monster parts are movable).
Participants have the option of building a scene together below if they're feeling adventurous.
