American Flag Abstraction
This project is so simple and yields stunning results! I hand out white paper, black permanent (Sharpie) markers, and two sizes of star patterns. Students trace the stars on their paper wherever they like using the black marker. Then, they connect the stars using stripes; hence, the "stars & stripes" of the American flag. To finish, they used marker and crayon to color their works. These were mounted on gold & silver paper (from Dick Blick- wonderfully smooth & beautiful) and hung for Veteran's Day, but could be used for any patriotic celebration.
