This project was a study of line, shape, pattern, and color theory. What looks at first to be a non-objective abstract drawing is actually a well-camouflaged animal. Students drew simple animals, then hid them by drawing lines, shapes and patterns that overlapped. To introduce color theory, students drew a color scheme at random from a box and used only the colors that were allowed for their scheme. After the projects were finished, we had a great source of images to use as examples of different color combinations and the students quickly became more familiar with each color scheme.
