DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT

Symbols represent ideas
Symbols for personality
Symbols for interests
Symbols can represent what you LIKE
and what YOU ARE LIKE

Draw 8 symbols which are particular to you and your personality and interests.

Organize your 8 symbols into an arrangement in which the shapes overlap each other and create new spaces. Each space will be painted with a blended color.


You can see some great results below done by 8th Graders in Wheaton, Minnesota middle school.
Notice how the colors are applied in each space and how colors are blended
within the space. The paint we used is a tempera or poster paint.
