Wednesday Works (Thursday Edition) - Notan Paper Cuttings


noun \ˈˈtän\
:  the combination of lights and darks especially as used in Japanese art 

I introduce this paper cutting lesson at the beginning of each quarter to get a feel for the ability level of the students since they last saw me at the elementary building.   It is a simple to do yet complicated looking lesson to use for a variety of different ability levels.   Students can work with compound cuts and smaller detail sections to bump up the challenge level.  I have also given them a two color square challenge for fast finishers. 

This is the section of 8th grade projects this quarter.    Very nice works here!  I cannot wait to see what else this group comes up with.
