I love this project. I found this idea from a very old Arts and Activities Magazine. The students take a 12x12" piece of white paper and fold it like an "x" (Fold Diagonally both directions). Then the student will fold their paper in a "t"shape (horizontal fold and vertical fold). Now, refold all of your fold lines so that only a triangle will be shown. Write your name in bubble letters so that it completely fills up the triangle. Outline with a black crayon. Transfer with a craft stick and retransfer until all of the triangles are full.
I let the students choose their material to color with. Some used paint, oil pastels, markers, colored pencils, or a combination of materials.
The key elements about this project: Use repetition (of colors) and the use of Radial balance. What fun! The students sure did a nice job with their projects!
