pinwheels 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. A fun lesson for my line unit!
Maybe glue on a window or glass. Watercolor mosaic - really like this idea art journal. Paste paper works too. Great project for a class project, upper or lower grades. Mounting the work on canvas adds a very professional look to the completed collage.
