Here's some eye catching art that second graders created earlier in the year when being introduced to geometric and free form shape.
Student artists love the idea of being inventors! I tell them their job is to invent free form shapes that NO ONE has ever seen before.
On multicolor scratch-art paper, they are to invent five to seven free-form shapes: some large, some medium, some small. (variety)
After scratching out the shapes, they need to draw a "fence" line around each shape so it's surrounded by black.
Finally, artists need to create a background that's the same all over, to give unity to the piece.
Looking at cells under the microscope on the Smart Board provided inspiration.
