Calming Non Objective Art

Sometimes it can feel calming or meditative to create artwork that doesn’t look like anything or mean anything. Art that does not represent anything or look like anything specific is called non objective art.

For this artwork I used watercolor paints, paper, and two black Sharpies.

If you want to try to make an artwork like the one above, follow these steps:

  1. Paint or color shapes or “blobs” of color on your paper.
  2. Draw patterns on top of the dry paint or color. These patterns can be made from simple lines and shapes repeated over and over again.

Try not to worry about what your artwork looks like, instead notice how you are feeling while you are creating.
