A Circle: The Universal Symbol

Last week we looked at the symbol of the Circle in Art and Architecture from around the world . It is the most universal of all symbols, dating from cave paintings and found in every culture. We discussed the origins of the symbol of a circle as representing the sun and moon.

As a follow up the children did practice drawings and designs that eventually resulted in what Alex referred to as their "Masterpiece". They are becoming very comfortable with the process of creating and recreating to get great results. We used a variety of techniques including painting and printmaking resulting in some very vibrant and colorful pieces.
