Primary Color Blocks

Inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian students practiced using a ruler to create a variety of squares and rectangles within  a grid like format. Primary colors using watercolor paints, were added and black was used to provide balance.

Folk Cat

Using direct drawing as a jumping off point students created their own cat pattern. They used this form to trace and cut out a "fabric" (Old wall paper samples) cat. Using a hole puncher they made an seam/outline that they laced with yarn. Last details were added with buttons and thin black sharpie.


Fishy Fishy

This direct drawing project was inspired by a pinterest post

I expanded the project and added a few additional details.
The students really enjoyed creating their own Koi like fish using crayon resist and watercolor paints.
