One of the interesting things I learned about Romero Britta, when I looked up his biography, is the fact that when he started painting he painted on scraps of cardboard and newspaper. Britta’s optimistic, fun-loving approach to life is reflected in his selection of art subjects and his use of vibrant colors. I find his use of lines, circles and patterns a compelling reason to imitate his art. PowerPoint featuring Britta’s art is included. In this project we will be using a compass for the circles or part circles and a ruler for straight lines. For a list of supplies and directions go to, “Bright and Beautiful Britta,” in the 6th Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar. Click on the image for a better view.
