Alphabet Art from the First Graders

What is a focal point?  How do artists arrange their composition?  What is emphasis?  How have words and letters been used in art?   

These are some of the questions the Primaries explored in their first unit.  We looked at the art of Stuart Davis by viewing a slideshow. 

The Primaries created a work of art using letters and numbers.  They choose one letter or number to use as the focal point and then surrounded it with other letters and numbers.

More examples from the 1st graders:
