This week 5th graders finished their experiment with composition using a color/alphabet system that we patterned after a process similar (we think) to one used by artist, Steve Roden (see earlier post here). We did it in one 50 minute session, but it was a rush. I would split it into 2 sessions next time. This turned out to be one of those projects where EVERYONE was successful!!
This was the first step in this project. Kids created a bunch of small squares, mixing colors.
