Hand-Made: Geometric Compositions


Put up, and discuss arrangements made from 5 mediumly thick + 1extra thick brown strips of paper on a half sheet of off white paper. Arrangements should be non representational. Paper may be manipulated.


Look into Bauhaus (link), De Stijl (precursor to Bauhaus), and other geometric influenced styles.

Using the magazines provided, create your own non-representational piece. See my example on the wall (clue: it’s the “winning” one).
