Students will begin 2 different projects:
6th period will work on Character Trees. Each student will think about 10 positive words that describe themselves. They will study the structure of trees by sketching the 2 trees outside of the art room window. We will begin to talk about silhouettes and shadows so students can paint their tree silhouette on paper.
7th period will begin building a paper mache' Thanks Tree. Each student will work with a group of students to make paper mache' branches for a large scale tree. We looked at the structure of trees and discussed the elements of form, line, texture and shape to create branches out of wire and other recyclables.
