This lesson we went back over positive and negative space and looked at collage to create a NOTAN inspired artworks. Pupils had one sheet of black paper. They had to plan a design thinking about a successful balance and creating harmony within the design. The pupils that were more able flipped their shapes a number of times to create more positive and negative areas within their original design.
This project is great for forward planning and working carefully to cut and place your shapes to realign the black sheet edges.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
