Abstraction With Scissors
Fifth grade students are finishing up a unit on Abstraction! This image represents a project completed by each fifth grader. The students created random patterns with pencil, paper and a pair of scissors. After creating their patterns, the students used view finders to select a composition that was pleasing to them. Using enlarging strategies, the students transfered the enlarged image to their 11 x 17 canvas paper. An analogous color scheme using five different hues of acrylic paint was required for the color application portion of the assignment. Each student chose a different series of hues, all were interesting and lovely!
