Celebrating Frank Stella!

Let’s celebrate another May-born artist, the contemporary abstract artist, Frank Stella.  Have you ever heard of a square rainbow?  Frank Stella became famous for his “Concentric Squares” in rainbow colors in the 1960’s.  Draw a square and make another smaller square inside it until you get at least 6 squares. The smallest one will be in the center. Use a ruler if you want, but it’s not necessary.  Then color your square outlines in RAINBOW (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) order.  I even used Silly Scents crayons on my Frank Stella rainbow – my artwork smells great this week!  Have fun creating your Frank Stella-inspired square rainbows, and feel free to share them with me at [email protected]

I am St. Aloysius School's art teacher for grades K-8. It is a joy to bring art instruction to our students.
