Abstract Art with Grades 6 to 8 at the Del Van Gorder School
The parameters for this project were quite wide so the students could design their own images. I usually do not do this but abstract art can be such an individual form of creative expression. I thought this would be interesting to see what each student came up with. I asked the teacher that they be given some class time before the project day to surf and print out symbols, a quote or their names so we could decoupage these into their abstract pieces. Some chose to do this and some did not. The medium used was acrylic on a 9x12 canvas board. Three hours (a school morning) was the time allotted for this work of art.
Below are the finished pieces produced:
a highly creative and unique expression by each student!
