Notan Design

This was a simple art I project where we discussed Notan designs and positive and negative space.


  • Glue sticks
  • Scissors 
  • Colorful constructions paper (one large sheet and one small)
  • pencil
  1. Students took two different colors of constructions paper. On the smaller square they used a pencil to come up with a creative design using only lines. The rule was that each line they drew had to start on one side and then end on that same side. There are some exceptions to that rule, but in general that works best. 
  2. After drawing out their design, students took scissors and cut out all of their pieces. Make sure they know that they will be using all the parts they cut out so that they don't throw anything away.
  3. Lastly they are going to glue the small sheet of paper and cutouts onto the larger sheet of paper.
