The 6th grade art class learned about the country and culture of Japan. We looked at the Japanese Notan Principle, which focuses on equal parts and balance. Students cut out 2 square designs and flipped the shapes to create balance & equality. Then we put all of our artworks together to create one large artwork.
Students also worked with oil pastels and organic lines to make a colorful drawing. We focused on blending colors next to each other on the color wheel: analogous colors.
