Hard edge Paintings

Hard Edge Painting also called Geometric Abstraction is an approach to abstract painting that became widespread in the 1960s and is characterized by areas of flat color with sharp, clear (or ‘hard’) edges. This project may seem simple, but it requires skills to create a composition only applying the elements of line, shape, and color. Creating movement, harmony, and balance using only these principles has been challenging for tenth grade students. Also creating clean sharp edges is a task within itself.

Here is some of the work in process.
