Easy Transition

As we segue from texture to the final art element, color in our 2-D design class, the students needed an easy exercise.  I think that this was the simplest method for conveying the concept of complementary color arrangements.

 Collage is stress-free, recycles printed matter and results in some wonderful small pieces of art.

 The objective of the lesson was to utilize complementary colors.  Students could pick any hue from the color wheel and use it in any of its manifestations.  They were to use the complement as an accent or focal point in their work.

 They were instructed to refrain from using humans, eyeballs, words and identifiable objects and instead focus on non-objective abstraction

There is always one in every crowd who rejects the "rules of the game".  All you can do is laugh out loud.
