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.


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.
