Creating a Composition 

In this activity you will focus on ways to arrange objects in artwork. 

Items needed: digital camera or mobile device, pencil and paper

 Directions: Form an L shape using your pointers and thumbs, put them together to create a square, this is called a frame.  Look through your frame, what objects do you see? Those items or objects are part of the “composition” framed by your hands.  Next you will create a composition series using 3 items around you.  Choose to sketch or photograph your composition.  Don’t forget to name your series.
