3/17 ABSTRACT ART INSPIRED BY SONIA DELAUNAY AND HER COLORFUL GEOMETRIC PATTERNS
A mother makes a quilt for her baby son. Of course, it’s no big deal, after all countless Moms across the world and across ages have done it. But when that quilt becomes the beginning of an art movement, you know that we’re not talking of an ordinary Mom! That’s right, we’re talking about Sonia Delaunay, an amazing woman and the first living female artist to have an exhibition at the Louvre. Today we’re going to focus on this inspiring artist with circles and strait lines, patterns and colors.

aterials: 1. White papers 2. Any round containers (preferably transparent) that you have in your house, like glasses, small bawls, tape rings, yogurt containers, any thing that you can trace a circle around it. 3. A Ruler or a strait stick. 4. Pencil and eraser 5. Any color material that you have at home - watercolors, paint, colored pencils or markers Instructions: 1. Use your ruler to draw diagonal lines from one side of the paper to the other. One, two or three or even more. 2. Use your round objects to add circles, one inside the other, some whole circles and some half or partial circles. 3. Start coloring shapes in. Think about contrasting colors. 4. Take your time, you don't have to finish it at once! You can leave some area uncolored but it should be because you chose to have them colored in white and not because you got tired... 5. Ask your parent to take a picture and send it to me(-:
