1. You know about geometric shapes such as circles, squares, rectangles, triangles and ovals. Natural shapes are shapes found in nature such as the shape of a leaf, flower, bird or fish.
Use construction paper to tear and cut geometric and natural shapes in a variety of sizes. Design a composition using these shapes. You may overlap some. Place smaller ones on top of larger ones. Fill your page just like the two artists did. Add details with colored pencils, crayons or marker.
2. Pretend you live in a small village. There are animals, small houses and farms. Draw a picture about living there.
