The Art of Shapes

How can we make art inspired by the shapes around us and share it with others?

Project Summary

In this project, students learn about the different geometric shapes in the world around them (e.g., rectangles, squares, trapezoids, etc.). They keep an artist’s sketchbook to take note of the shapes  and include ideas as to how to incorporate shapes in their art. Students write an artist’s statement telling about their process and welcome visitors to the grand opening of their Shapes Gallery where they hold a meet the artist talk, answer questions, and share their pieces.
