Artsology Click and drag your mouse on the canvas to create different colored rectangular shapes and create a geometric abstract "painting." Each time you make a new geometric shape, a random color combination will appear, so no two paintings will ever be the same. Experiment with different designs, whether you overlap them or keep them separate. If you come up with something you really like, take a screen shot and send it to us and we'll start a geometric art gallery. If you want some inspiration, scroll down below the canvas and check out some geometric art paintings from famous artists.
