Day 126 - Cutting Edge Art

My class was working on an art project today. It's called transformational geometry art. They needed to create a design on a 2"x2" piece of white paper and trace it with a black fine point marker. When it was complete I made pages of 12 and photocopied them so students would have 12 copies of their own design. I did cut the squares for the students but the cuts were not exact. Students had to use the above paper cutter to trim their squares so they would fit together. The students LOVE using the paper cutter and are careful to use it properly. Students were focused and worked diligently to put their squares together. Once together, they needed to make a photocopy and then colour it. I will be sure to capture some finished projects as students complete their masterpieces.

I like the way you focussed on the essential - to see the hand and machine.
