In the Classroom: Star Light, Star Bright

Anne Phillips subbed for Katrina Plato’s art class at Bowman Middle School and used the opportunity to teach art techniques through the creation of fun geometric starbursts.  Students used colored pencils on black paper to create starburst shapes.  They were asked to use a variety of textures and patterns when creating their star, and were reminded of considering negative space within their design.  They reviewed the color wheel and discussed complimentary colors which they were to consider when creating their star design.  The result was a burst of bright and brilliant star designs.
