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!
