Abstract art is a form of modern and postmodern art that focuses on the power of each individual work to express compositions in a new way. Creative work in this style is usually non-representational, the artist’s forms may vary from a small degree of inaccurate representation of images to total abstraction.
Our classrooms were filled with paint and abstraction this past week as we were inspired to create our own non-representational art. Students started with an underpainting using different colours of red and orange to fill their page. Next we created texture by applying a scrap piece of paper over the wet paint and pressing down to remove and mix the colours. We then created a composition with white, yellow and black and a small pop of blue.
