Geometric Quilts

Thank you ArtWithMrsNguyen for the fabulous project idea and step-by-step guide!

As soon as I saw this great project on Melinda’s website, I knew it would be perfect for my 2nd graders. On the first day, we followed the step-by-step guide to fold the paper. We used white oil pastels to create squares and triangles. Students discussed the concepts of “unity” and “variety” by comparing and contrasting a few project examples.

They could choose if they wanted to create a pattern to make artwork with unity or do random symbols and designs to create artwork with variety. Using oil pastels, students created designs in their triangles.

The next week, they used watercolors to carefully paint their designs.

The result is a charming geometric quilt design!

Fabulous work 2nd graders!

❤ Mrs. K
