How to abstract the view from your window

1) Sketch three things you see from your window

2) Transform your drawings into basic shapes in three different colours 

3)Cut your drawings out and have fun arranging them. Will they overlap? or go inside eachother? How do the colours work together?  

4) If you want this to become a 3D sculpture, cut the same shapes out of card, cut slits on each of the shapes to fit together - does it stand up or will it need help?


We would love to see your creations. Share them with us on Twitter at @FitzMuseumEduca or on our Facebook page: Fitzwilliam Museum Education Department.
