Rhythm - this is the topic of a system of repeatedly repeating paper squares in the same color.

It can be vertically:pi 

it can be level  poziom

and it may be diagonally: skos 

Materials needed: White paper with dimensions. 45cm / 45cm, colored papers can also be gray paper, glue, scissors.

Methodology of classes: 

We cut 16 colored squares of equal size. e.g. 10 cm / 10 cm: wycinanie 

Four squares are in one color, the others in any color:  kwadraty 

Squares of the same color are arranged either diagonally:układanka 

or horizontally: układanka1

, or vertically: układanka2

plecionka 3 First, we prepare a paper frame. The best of thicker cardboard.

plecionka 5 plecionka 4 Then we prepare strips (width: 1.5-2 cm) from thin, crumpled paper).

plecionka 2 We prepare the warp of the fabric. We stick the twisted stripes from a short distance (about 1 cm) from each other.

plecionka 1 Fabric. We alternate the strips alternately. You can also use a twine.

plecionka And this is what the fabric.

Coming soon: artetherapy on my site A jigsaw puzzle of colored papers with a certain rhythm.

kompozycja przestrz.1 Spatial composition. Derived colors.

Way of cutting: We run scissors so that there is one cut line, as shown in the picture with the line. In the indicated places (asterisk), we cut and continue with scissors, according to one cutting line. We fold or fold some of the cut elements so that they are spatial. 

The method of spatial composition implementation:

We have three sheets of paper in primary colors: yellow, red and blue. In one of them we cut the line, according to the method indicated above. We fold the first spatial element down, and the other two bend up. These elements can be folded into a harmonica or rolled up.

On a red card, we attach paper fragments in blue.


On a blue piece of paper, we attach the red paper fragments.


On a yellow card, we attach the blue paper fragments.


On a heavenly piece of paper, we attach paper fragments in yellow.


On the red card, stick the paper fragments in yellow.


On a yellow card, we glue the colored fragments in red.

I will soon introduce how to make such a fabric:plecionka



 I recommend assemblage in the field of art therapy.

Here is an example of the plastic work of a child aged 10, made in the mosaic technique. It is an assemblage (ie assemblage) - means a collection).

The topic can be implemented with children of all ages. We see glued linen clips integrated into the whole work. We may as well place other everyday objects on plastic work, such as gloves, pencils, caps and even shoes.  

It is a great fun, developing creativity and manual efficiency. In my book PLASTYCZNY ALFABET I presented an example of assemblage with the use of an envelope. In the near future I will present how this spatial composition can be realized:

Interestingly, three-dimensional elements are not glued.


And soon there will be shorter days.
