PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a study of primary colors, lines and shapes. We looked at the artwork of Piet Mondrian for our inspiration. This was a two day project, studying robots!

On day one, students looked at the works of Piet Mondrian. We came up with a list of attributes to his artwork: primary colors, black lines, squares and rectangles. As a class, we talked about the body parts of a robot. We played "head and sholders, knees and toes" to discuss these parts. We started with a rough draft paper. It had a small example in the corner of what a robot might look like. We started with the neck and head, then the shoulders and arms, and finally the legs. Before the students added buttons, antennas, a face, or colored in their rough drafts, I instructed the class that I would call students up to my desk one at a time to choose a color for their robots belly (red, yellow or blue). The paper was a 4" x 4" piece of construction paper for the belly This way, it would be glued down in the center of the paper, all ready for day two.
On day two, I gave students a black crayon and we walked through how to draw the parts of a robot together. We reviewed the primary colors again before students painted their robots.

When I hung these up for display, I cut away the extra white paper from their 12" x 18" and glued them onto construction paper that was a primary color, it gave the display a nice effect.

Please follow me and leave feedback so that I can here how this worked in your classroom :)
