Bryant students create symmetry with Notan pieces
The Japanese art of Notan involves cutting shapes and flipping them.
SUPERIOR — Fifth grade students at Bryant Elementary School have been working on creating Japanese Notan.
Notan means a balance between light and dark. Students had to cut organic forms and shapes from a square. They then flipped the shapes outward to create a symmetrical shape. They added this to a piece of paper that they dyed using markers. Students also got to practice writing "2023" in Japanese and any other words they wanted to try.
