The International Academy students continued their exploration of the elements of art with this lesson on shapes. We began by creating large geometric shapes like squares, circles, triangles and rectangles. These shapes were then colored in with markers. Next, we dropped or splashed water onto the shapes to loosen the ink and alter the edges to convert the shapes from geometric to organic. The splashes were then outlined in black permanent marker. This was as a fun quick lesson to introduce different types of shapes and transformation in art.
