Geometric and Free Form Shapes
different kinds of shapes
Art @ Massac
Topography~The students begin with drawing an organic shape on a large piece of construction paper. After they have it cut out they re-trace it on another piece and copy the line only a little smaller. They keep this up until their pieces become small. Once all the pieces are cut out they start to glue them together and put a small piece of styrofoam or cardboard in between to get the height to really show.Try and place the styrofoam above one another, it will make it easier to press down.
2nd Grade Matisse Collage
SHAPE: Day 1:Students studied Matisse and what a collage is. I had a bunch of pre-cut squares/rectangles cut and they arranged and glued them on to a 12 X 18 colored paper of their choice. Day 2: Learned about organic shapes and positive/negative space. Students created various organic shapes and glued on using positive and negative pieces. Day 3: Compared Organic Shapes to Geometric shapes. Students cut smaller geometric shapes to add. The more the better!
