As an introduction to our unit on Abstract Art, students began with lessons that allowed them to create an art piece with very little boundaries. The lesson was derived from the Incredible Art Department – a gem for teachers like myself who struggle to fit themselves into the Ontario Art Curriculum.
Students were given some basic instructions in a specific order (create a line, draw a triangle etc…) and then given free reign to finish as they so desired. As you can see – the final products are really awesome.
As a next step, we’ll be looking at form, line and color in each of the pieces. Once we understand these three concepts (form, line and color), students will constructively critique each other’s work. Once we’ve completed that, we’ll dwelve deeper into abstract art.
