pinwheels for peace project with introduction to 5 abstract artists/art forms and 5 techniques great start of year project- watercolor washes, opaque watercolor technique (staying inside lines), pointillism, op art, pollock, modrian, monet (I think)
I've seen this project done a few different ways by a few different art teachers and thought I'd give it a try. It is a quick, two day lesson. We started with 2 pieces of construction paper (any color of their choice) in a 9x12 size. We made concentric hearts on each of them using different colors for each page and trying to make them close to the same size. Second day, we cut the papers up, wove them together, and finally added a little splatter paint action for the finishing touch!
