Elements of Art: Shape

We began our exploration of share by arranging some foam stickers into a picture or arrangement on the right side of a paper. Next we coloured those shapes and folded the paper over, so that it stamped the shape onto the other side.

Next, took out another piece of paper and drew our shape onto the left side. Next, we carved into the foam stickers using a pen to create texture. Then we stamped the shape again to see how the texture would change the imprint.

My mentor artist for shape is Gustav Klimt, who uses shape in his background and the clothes of his portrait characters.
