Spring semester is underway, and my students are already hard working on their midterm projects. I am posting a few from the first month of class focusing on the Design Principles and understanding line and shape in a grid.
The project is called 5X5. Students had to create a grid using 25 squares. In those 25 squares they had to incorporate line and shape using the Principles of Design as a Guide. Some students followed the grid throughout their whole piece, while others broke the grid to create a new design piece within. This assignment is a great for non art majors and art majors as it pushes the way they see line and shape in a project so that they can see beyond the grid.
