Inspired by Bruce Gray

I saw this picture by Bruce Gray online last year...
and thought it would be an great inspiration for a paint project on the computer. 
So I looked up Mr. Gray and found he has a website filled with images.
He also has an awesome video tour of his studio.  

We start the lesson by watching his video and talking about what we see.  We talk about what sorts of artwork we see and we look for his paintings.  Focusing on his paintings, we discuss his use of unity and variety (repeat one shape but change the colors).  Then I demonstrate how to use the paint program on the computer to repeat a shape over and over.  Then we discuss filling the shapes with different colors.  Then they get to work and I love how they turn out...

  2. These are very cool! I can't wait to try this. I have been looking for some ways to integrate technology more and this will sure fit the ticket. On a side note I am formally from Norfolk and now am teaching in Bellevue. Check out my blog when you get a chance! http://aschukei.blogspot.com

    1. Great blog. I love the lego people... got me thinking about a minecraft project. If you use artsonia, I highly recommend their artsonia.com/class as a way for students to turn in their computer projects and as a great way to add some writing into the curriculum.
