    The purpose of the thesis is to research a conceptual and applicative technical nature of the collage through various approaches of the artists. The challenges of the collage in the thesis are dealt with three perspectives: artistic-theoretical, artistic-practical and educational-empirical. In the artistic-theoretical part I first present the historical background of the birth of collage in cubism, reasons and influences that sponsored the emergence of cubism, describe its analytical and synthetic phase and define the technique of collage, where I point out the usage of everyday materials as well as texturation of the image area. I then focus on the texture – felt and visible characteristic of the surface from the shape-formation perspective. I deal with the texture in relationship with delineation artistic elements that delineate the texture (point, line, light-dark, color), and as a plastic variable that is tightly connected with the variables: number and density. Further in the artistic-theoretical part, I explain the notion of artistic articulation and present different techniques and conceptual possibilities of collaging in cases of artistic works of different artists, which, consequently, influences the appearance of texture in their work. In artistic-practical part the applicative nature of collage reflects also in my creative process, among others through the usage of some techniques, mentioned in artistic-theoretical part, which were used on the paper which was produced manually, as well as conceptual, for I form my own understanding of the collage, based on the concept of a furniture element drawer as archives. In the educational-empirical part, I present assemblage to the pupils of the seventh grade through my own lessons, for the technique of collage is well known to the pupils; with regards to the fact that they begin to create collages out of the collage paper as early as in the first triad of the elementary school. The technique of assemblage within the artistic task was a means for an abstract expression of the pupils with respect to a given artistic motive. Pedagogical-empirical part includes the analysis of my own lessons as well as the analysis of pupils’ artistic products.
