Abstract Art featuring Stuart Davis

4th graders are transitioning from observational drawing to drawing from their own creative thoughts.  We are looking to American painter Stuart Davis to inspire us to create our own abstract compositions.  After choosing a theme, students divide their page into sections, add visual clues for their theme, and add visual texture.  Students are reminded that negative space is equally important here as positive space.
