gave each student a 12"x12" square sheet of white drawing paper and had then fold it in half, and then fold it in half again. When they opened it, they had created 4 equal squares. They then began in the center of the paper, in one of the squares corners. Using oil pastels, they started with creating a little triangle and then creating blocks of color from the center out. Some of the kids made patterns with their colors, while others simply used as many colors as they could.
