HOMEWORK: Calligraphic Tree - See Demo for steps

Roxana shows the start of a multi-layer painting.
Each area of the painting has different color, textures, shapes, and sizes.

Step 01: White space in between the small areas was created by applying tape onto the paper, creating an open gridwork.

Step 02: Each open area inside the gridwork was painted. Paint was allowed to dry.

Step 03: All of the tape was removed, then reused to create a new gridwork right on top of the dried artwork.

Step 03: Within the new open gridwork, she painted new areas, overlapping colors and forms and textures on the first layer.
Example of taped gridwork and painted areas.
Students remove tape and then create a new gridwork.
Example of finished work by a student.

Note overlapping colors, variety of textures and shapes.
Layers of colors effectively create new color blends.
