Patchwork squares drawings & colorings, and exercises, adult art class, 11/28/16

Exercises were to draw a series of graphs: 8 x 8, 6 x 6, 7 x 7, and 7 x 7. The 7 x 7 would give central axes. Color in one color designs for the 8 x 8 and the 6 x 6. Make two color designs in the 7 x 7's.

For the big designs:
Fold up a sheet of letter paper so that you make a square out of it. I assume you know how to do that? (Fold the short side onto the long side. That should give you two equal sides with some excess. Trim off the excess. You will be left with a square sheet of paper.) Fold the square into 16 squares. Color a one color design using the squares from your folding.

New sheet: Fold into seven equal panels that will be equal or less then the square you can get out of that sheet. Make seven panels the other way so that you will have a 7 squares x 7 squares square. We used a fan fold or an accordian fold in order to get our seven equal parts. It is not as precise as measuring but we were working on the fly.) Now you will have a square that has  two central axes. Color a design using two colors.
