Non-Objective Drawings

5th Grade students were asked to create a non-objective colored pencil and oil pastel drawing that was inspired by a small triangle magazine clipping. Clippings were required to be abstract and have a good amount of lines, shapes, patterns, and colors to help inspire the non-objective drawing. Final projects were required to have movement (we talked about how an eye can move and dance around a drawing following the lines, shapes, and patterns) and unity (as a class we looked at various student examples of this project and we critiqued each drawing talking about whether or not the drawing had unity). Overapping was encoraged in order to give the drawings a sense of space.
