I didn’t get any pictures of these young artists. We got so busy in class that I forget to grab my camera. I introduced the Geological Nonobjective Abstracts to the students. We used styrofoam plates cut into a square then they cracked the plate – therefore forming a geological aerial view of the earth. Way cool. I discussed analogous complementary colors. The artists chose their colors then started to paint the sections of the square. Guess some pictures would help here! Grrrr. Anyway, I’ll get some pictures next week for sure. We had an Art History lesson – we studied “Fur Traders Descending the Missouri”, Bingham, 1845. We discussed how the Indians and pioneers used fur. I defined “descending.” We found the Missouri River on the globe along with the Ol’ Mississippi. We also found all the oceans, the equator, hemispheres, Europe, the Mediterranean – and I think that was about it. Stay tuned for more Geological NOA!
