Fifth graders learned about the PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN and how they help artists decide how to use the elements of art.
“the building blocks”
|scale and proportion||form|
After this study, students looked at some different ways artists have used text in their work.
We explored a variety of fonts and used cropping Ls to find parts of letters that would show a principle of design. After the composition was chosen, students drew and painted their work in the hard edge style.
Can you tell what PRINCIPLE these students used?
