3rd grade Abstract Art

3rd graders discussed Abstract Art and its history in culture.  Does art have to have a subject?  What is the meaning of abstract art?  Does art have to look like something in real life?  Students painted papers with the intermediate colors (yellow-green, red-purple, etc).  By cutting geometric shapes and arranging them in a repetitive and balanced way, students created abstract art!


I think this project encouraged students to think outside the box.  Students were able to use their creativity to create simple and repetitve geometric designs.  Students were encouraged to cut their shapes in new and creative ways.  They were encouraged to be unique.
