This unit was completed overall several weeks. First students experimented with recycled material to create sculptures. Paper sculptures were created next by manipulating oaktag using contour line and pos/neg space. After creating a freestanding sculpture, students painted a contour line then used pos/neg space to enhance painting in monochromatic colors. These paintings were displayed at the Brooklyn Museum Spring 2014.
