4 Square Abstraction
Create a collage from a magazine of 4 equal squares. Try to make objects in the squares unidentifiable. Glue them in an interesting way next to each other (as shown in the example). Create a colored pencil drawing or painting in one color of your collage. The finished product will look like an abstract artwork.
