6th grade students learned about styles and characteristics of abstract art, comparing and contrasting artworks by different artists.  Students chose a pair of opposite words to illustrate in abstract subject matter.  Students focused on relying on the Elements of Art: line, shape, color, form, texture, value, and space instead of portraying a recognizable, realistic subject matter.  Students practiced oil pastel techniques – mixing colors together, blending with their finger, and creating layers of colors.  The results are stunningly complex and different compositions.
