Pre IB Art 1 - Line, Shape, Pattern

Art 1 students have completed their first assignment of the year.  Students used their first name as the main part of a composition including lines and shapes.  They used repetition to unify their designs while using many different types of lines and shapes to add variety.

We finished this assignment with a post-it-note class critique.  Students responded to prompts by leaving comments for others by their artwork.

I love this project. How did the students begin to think about their composition and what guidance did you give them?

Students started with finding a font to draw their name, then they worked on the composition. This was our first assignment so it was an introduction of basic vocabulary, thumbnail sketches, and working with pattern and repetition. I have been doing a variation of this assignment for ten years and have always gotten good results.

Do you limit their post-it critique to positive feedback only?
