Working with... Squares

 Creating an abstract drawing with squares:
  1. The teacher will write on the whiteboard 10 numbers in cm., for exemple: 9,3,7,2,1,4,5,2,6. These numbers are the square's side size. 
  2. How to draw a square knowing its side.
  3. Each student will draw the square wherever he/she wants. 
  4. Once all the squares are drawn, the student has to decide wich one is going to be on top or beneath the other. The lines that will not be needed will be erased.
  5. Colour the composition.


Several Circles, 1926; Kandinsky.
    Wassily Wassilyevich Kandinsky (4 December (16 December by the Gregorian calendar) 1866 – 13 December 1944) was a Russian painter and art theorist. He is credited with painting one of the first recognised purely abstract works.

We will create an artwork after Kandinsky's painting.

    A grid is a pattern of regularly spaced horizontal and vertical lines forming squares on a map, an optical device, etc., used as a reference for locating points.

 Exercise 1: You will copy the turtle on the given grid. Make sure that the lines fit in the corresponding square (A1, D3, etc.) You will get an exact copy of the original drawing!

Exercise 2: In this exercise the grid will change the butterfly's shape, making it thinner and wider.


Monoprinting is a form of printmaking. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals.

         1. Each student will draw a picture on an acetate with tempera.
         2. Press the acetate onto the paper. The paint will be transfered to the white paper. I recommend you not to wait till the colors are dry.

Cut out symmetric shapes.

See how easy is to have a nice symmetric shape with the following method!!!
  1. Cut a piece of paper. It's better if it's a rectangle.
  2. Draw half of the shape on the paper
  3. Cut out the piece drawn
  4. Glue both pieces on a another paper.
