RELATED ACTIVITIES

  • 1.

    Stella used many lines and shapes to make a symmetrical composition (the same on the left and on the right.) Fold your paper in half, then open it. Use a dark crayon to draw shapes and lines on the left side of the paper. Fold your paper closed. Use a ruler to rub the back of your design. It will transfer onto the right side of the paper. You have just made a symmetrical design. You may add color to your design. Keep the colors symmetrical.

  • 2.

    Think of all the ways that Colonial people traveled: stagecoach, horseback, wagon, train, riverboat, etc. Pick your favorite and draw a picture of it.
