This project had many layers to it. First we discussed abstract art and how it does not have to show anything in particular. So the first layer that the students were instructed to do was to choose a color scheme and paint their entire paper with shapes and lines in anyway they wanted. The second layer was to outline their shapes with either white or black depending on their colors and what would look best. The next layer was to add different types of funky paper over top. Lastly students cut their painting apart in 3 inch squares and then reassembled it onto a new piece of paper. And there you have your abstract collage.
