I had 100's to choose from as I had four classes making these. My classes are mixed ages and levels so this is definitely accessible for everyone, including special needs.

This is a great project for all ages and abilities. The students started with a 5" or 6" square of black construction paper, drew shapes (white pencil crayon), cut out all the pieces, glued down the remainder of the original square, and then flipped over the cut out pieces ending up with a mirror image. There's a great you tube video that demonstrates the process well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=--IFiH6zH68. These are just a few of the pieces finished early. I'm having students do one in black and white and their second one using multiple colors.
Students had to include in their composition areas with specific colour schemes: (i) colour wheel, (ii) black and white scale, (iii) monochromatic scale, (iv) analogous and (v) complementary relationships. This project took a long time - lots and lots of sketchbook work - mixing colours etc. - prior to painting but finally we are finished.
