In Shape: Part Two


When the design class assignments morph from a diet of lean lines to voluptuous shapes, everyone is happy.
Like the art element line, shape can also be classified: geometric, biomorphic, actual, implied or amorphous.  Here are two earlier posts about this element:

Students are asked to find shapes in their surroundings.  Our classes meet in a renovated factory building with thoughtful and imaginative space.
Executed in inexpensive tempera paint, this student's rectilinear design was inspired by the exposed beams of the interior structure.
