1st Grade Free Form Shapes
First grade artists are learning all about free form shapes! Students drew one free form shape, then carefully cut it out and traced it many times onto a black piece of paper. Students made sure to overlap their shapes many times on the paper to create new free form shapes. Then, students had to put glue on top of all of their pencil lines...a very tricky technique! The glue had to dry overnight, and here are photos of students adding color inside their free form shapes after the glue had dried. The bright colors are from construction paper crayons, which work really well on darker paper.
