Transcript of Semester A-Z Project

Piet Mondrian
Pieter Cornelis "Piet" Mondrian, after 1906 Mondrian, was a Dutch painter. He was a contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed neoplasticism
"Abstract art is not the creation of another reality but the true vision of reality."
-Piet Mondrian
"True artists are inspired more by the beauty of lines and color and the relationships between them than by the concrete subject of the picture"
Step 4. Begin arranging red, yellow and blue shapes and black strips to create emphasis, movement and balance.
Remember that white space and black strips are part of the composition.
Helpful Hints:
*Your drawing is used as the basis for your abstraction
*Setting up a grid makes it easier to abstract
*Keep composition simple by limiting the number of colors and strips of black.
*There should be a focal point and movement.
Create an ABSTRACT Design
Step 1. Choose an object to do 1 large contour drawing on the page. Fill the page. Your drawing will be used as the basis for your abstract composition.
Step 2. Use the horizontal and vertical shapes in your drawing to create your lines for your abstract composition. Use a ruler to break up space into rectangles of varying sizes.
Where do I go from here?
Mondrian is your inspiration for your semester A-Z project
You will choose a theme that you can visually represent from A-Z
1. You will divide up your paper into 26 spaces that create movement and emphasis by changing your size and shape.
2. Your paper will have a 1/2 inch border around the outside and 1/4 inch between spaces.

Where is the emphasis?
