Abstract Designs

1st Grade_archive, 2nd Grade_archive

For this project, the first and second grade students had the opportunity to practice patters as well as experiment with materials. They began by drawing a looping line. Then, used colored crayons to draw patterns in the spaces they created. To finish, we talked about how the wax of the crayons creates a resist against water based paint. They discovered that some color combinations work better than others, and that even the black paint wouldn’t cover their crayon designs!
