Devin Pitts, ’18, cuts out a tree he designed from a white piece of card stock, Oct. 17.

Senior Devin Pitts cuts out the Japanese Notan design that he created in Vicky Belmont‘s second period art class, Oct. 17.

A Notan, meaning light and dark balance, comes from a Japanese concept having to do with the placement of light in imagery. 

Pitts was excited to take on this new concept.

“Designing Notans was definitely new to me,” Pitts said. “It’s a challenge but at the same time it’s really fun.”

Using an X-ACTO knife, students cut out their personal design from a white piece of paper. They then glue the white cut out piece of paper to a larger piece of black paper, placing the cut out pieces opposite of the original design.
