You will need:
Step 1: To make a golden rectangle, first draw a square. Recommendation: Practice making a golden rectangle on graph paper first.
Step 2: Extend two parallel lines from the top and bottom sides of the square.
Step 3: Mark the midpoint of the bottom side of the square.
Step 4: Position the point of the compass on the midpoint and extend the pencil to the upper right corner of the square. Draw an arc from the upper right corner of the square to the lower parallel line. Recommendation: place a piece of cardboard underneath the paper to anchor the compass in place.
Step 5: With the ruler, draw a perpendicular line from the point at which the arc meets the lower parallel line to the upper parallel line. This is a Golden rectangle.
Step 6: Choose colors. Use colored pencils, or markers to add color to some or all of the rectangles. Choose some of Torres-Garcia's pictographies to complete your artwork.
