Experiments with Art at Home by Anay & Ruchi - inspired by the Akanksha art curriculum...
What we used: - Paper for the base - need not be very large - Strips of all kinds of paper - gift wraps, gift bags, old art and anything shiny is always even better - Glue - Scissors - blunt
What we did: - Cut lots of strips of paper. Anay's job - Started sticking them all over. - It started out simple and the got really complicated as the intersected and wove through each other to make beautiful chaos.
What we learnt: - Art does not need to look like something. It can just be. - It should have meaning to you and making it should give it that value. Did you get something out of making it? - 3D and how it's different from 2D - Lines and all the crazy ways they can go!
