Charles DeMuth was an American artist who lived in the early 1900’s, famous for his abstract paintings. Here’s a simple way to imitate one of his paintings for a great abstract art for beginners project.
• Drawing paper
• Black marker
• Crayola Color Sticks or crayons
DeMuth’s “Figure 5 in Gold” is a wonderful abstract painting to show children as they can easily see the firetruck elements in it.
2. Using a ruler, they can draw about 5-6 lines from edge to edge to dissect the paper into many sections. Encourage them to spread the lines out.
4. Students choose one color theme for the inside of their number. In my example, I colored the inside of my 5 with orange. When that is done, they color in each segment with different colors, overlapping to create a new color when necessary.
