Sixth grade students changed their sketches into pieces.
Next students cut apart their initial sketches into squares.
Students took the pieces of their images and realigned them into a new image on a larger paper.
This process is much like creating your own puzzle out of the cut pieces of art work.
This required students to think about their art work in a new way and reconfigure their work into a new form.
Sixth graders have simplified their art work into geometrical shapes from images based on things they love.
The style of art work the sixth graders are working on is based upon a movement of art called Suprematism.
Students have excelled at deconstructing an image of something they love into a basic geometric form.
Students are now working in steps to build an abstracted image with shapes that will be turned into a future painting after Christmas break.
