Overview:
“Rhythm in Layers” Low-Relief Sculpture with Design in Mind
Layer by layer, piece by piece, students assemble a three-dimensional collage using simple pre-cut wood and cardboard shapes built up from a base. Because the design exists on multiple levels rather than a single plane, the relationship of each individual element to the whole must be considered. This lesson can be used to illustrate the following design principles:

Rhythm – repetition and placement of similar colors, shapes and lines throughout the collage will provide a sense of order and unity.

Balance – whether placed symmetrically or asymmetrically, collage materials should be arranged so that the visual weight is evenly distributed.
Movement – connecting shapes, lines and colors should lead the viewer on a path into, out of and around the entire piece.

Grade Levels 3-12
