Abstract Action!

Abstract art is non-representational art. Making abstract art means not trying to duplicate what you see, but just playing with colors, shapes, lines, forms, and patterns. In other words, just having fun! 

Abstract art is also fun to look at. You don't have to wonder what the artist is trying to say or what the art is supposed to look like or be, etc. etc. It's just visually entertaining or colorful or interesting or playful or cool or whatever comes to mind.

We made abstract art this week, starting with these interesting recycled paper weavings. These were created by all ages, from 4 to adult, and they were equally fun for everyone!

We borrowed this project idea from Art Lessons for Kids if you would like to make your own.
