What do numbers mean to us? Artists often use numbers as a subject for their paintings and they can be represented in a variety of ways. We talked about what it meant for a number to pop out from the page and stand out from the background in a strong and powerful way. We also looked at examples of artists who chose to hide or camouflage their number into their background. Students chose a number or numbers to paint and then decided whether they would have it camouflage or pop out using a variety of artistic skills such as repetition, color contrast and pattern.
