Flower Design using a Compass

Posted on October 4, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Below are the visual directions to create a flower design, using your compass.  You must do this project by yourself, by following the instructions.

Materials:

Compass (check one out with Ms. Carter), pencil, eraser, piece of plain, printer paper, colored pencils (optional).

1     Without folding, find a way to discover the center of your paper.  Use that point as the starting point of your design.

2     Make your flower almost the size of the paper, leaving 1/2 to 1 inch border space.

3     Your design will be graded on neatness and accuracy.

4    Practice with the compass on a piece of scratch paper, in order to master its use, before starting on your actual design.  You will not be able to use a ream of paper for your design (look up the word if you don’t know it).  Erase mistakes thoroughly.

5     Your design should be nice enough to be displayed in the classroom.

6     Write you name, with a pencil, on the back.  You may sign the front, but do it neatly, or stylistically.
