Free -Forming It

Here's some eye catching art that second graders created earlier in the year when being introduced to geometric and free form shape. 

Student artists love the idea of being inventors!  I tell them their job is to invent free form shapes that NO ONE has ever seen before. 

On multicolor scratch-art paper, they are to invent five to seven free-form shapes: some large, some medium, some small. (variety)
After scratching out the shapes, they need to draw a "fence" line around each shape so it's surrounded by black. 
Finally, artists need to create a background that's the same all over, to give unity to the piece. 

Looking at cells under the microscope on the Smart Board provided inspiration.
