1st Grade: Non-Objective Artwork
The first grade worked very hard on their non-objective artwork. The project started with using unconventional materials to print with paint. The students used Styrofoam cups and black paint to print a lot of circles however they chose onto a white sheet of paper. Students then colored in the various shapes that were created from overlapping circles. This was followed by using a balloon, that wasn't blown up all the way, to print a second layer on their paper. Then, students were given the creative freedom to cut-up their print however they chose as well as donated scrap, scrapbooking paper to create non-object art. Remember, when making non-objective artwork, you don't want it to look like anything recognizable!
