Homage to a Square activity - cut out 1", 2" and 3" squares of different
colors - have the students come up with 12 arrangements of colors (look at
Amish quilts). I did this with 5th graders to reinforce color theory - they
had to have 12 specific arrangements - all of the units were glued on black
paper (primary, secondary, value change - one hue (monochromatic), value
change - three hues, complimentary pair + one, change the order of previous,
white/gray/black, warm colors, cool colors, analogous, your choice for
relief paper sculptures of lines - cut out strips - curl, twist, flip,
fold... have a mat board base - look at Stella's reliefs -
