1/27 -1/29 Project : Changing Identity of a Shape
Using a 4” black square as a starting point, students will create from the cut pieces an 8”x10” composition of shapes in which observers will not recognize the original square. In a second composition, students will be asked to create a design that still looks like a square or looks as if it could easily return to a square.
Project : Black on White/ White on Black
Students will demonstrate creativity with shape and composition in two cut and paste compositions. Composition A will feature 5 black shapes arranged on a white groundsheet. Composition B will feature 5 white shapes arranged on a black groundsheet. Four compositions will be mounted and submitted for critique on 9/16
