Graphic Design: Cut & Paste basic compositions

This year, I am teaching Graphic Design at MC School for the first time to High-School students. I am very excited because I am a graphic designer, and don't get enough time to incorporate it into my student projects. Before we began designing, students researched graphic designers and presented their history and examples of their work. We have begun creating basic compositions using black and white shapes in a square format, focusing on shape, form, negative space and placement. I gave students paper with six empty squares, and another paper with various geometric shapes to cut out and glue, taking into account what we learned in class. They did a great job and are ready for our next leap into design composition.
