• Main Objective:

    Use your knowledge of Non-Objective Design and color theory to create a non-objective, geometric based, monochromatic painting.


    Process: When you complete a step put a check in the box next to it.

    • On the back of this paper create a rough draft of your design
    • Use the width of the ruler to create a border around the edge of your paper.
    • Create a non-objective geometric line drawing
    • (Non-objective art defines a type of abstract art that is usually, but not always, geometric and aims to convey a sense of simplicity and purity).
    • Use watercolors and sharpies to create your final design.
    • You will pick one root color to use, then use three different values of that color in your project.

    Where should my initial idea come from?

    • A realistic image that you transform into a geometric line drawing (see the image of the dancer to the left)
    •  Looking at Art work from artists such as Kandinsky and Malevich, who were Russian constructivist painters and pioneers of non-objective art. (See Kandinsky – Composition VIII, middle)
    • Geometric Tattoo design: Sacred geometry refers to patterns and designs that are found throughout nature. (see bottom right)
