7th Grade
Art Projects for September and October:

Abstract Art:  Students are introduced to the Abstract Art style, art that does not use figurative art forms as subject matter.  They are instructed to use the paintings of several artists to create their own Abstract Art composition.  They use mixed media, crayon, colored pencils and marker outlines to color their design

Abstract Art Portfolio Cover:  Students use the previous lesson to design an Abstract Art style composition on their art folder.  Their drawing will cover the entire folder front.  They divide the drawing in half, to show the difference between a composition drawn in line and a composition that is colored with shaded colored pencils.
