We looked into the fascinating life and artwork of Sonia Delaunay! She did some really beautiful graphic designs and worked heavily with textiles. She is inspirational as a female artist as well!
For our Delaunay inspired project we did the following.
1. We took geometric stencils and sketched a design of overlapping shapes onto card stock and made sure to fill the entire page and have some shapes run off of the edges.
2. We filled in our design with brightly colored markers.
3. We cut the original design into 4 equal pieces and redesign the image by rotating the pieces.
4. Once we were satisfied with our final design we glued it down to a colorful piece of card stock.
Here are the results!!
