Alebrijes & Test on Thursday

In 7th Grade we went over the slide presentation for our next project. We will be making
Papier-mâché animals. With in these animals we will be putting in LED lights, a battery, and a switch.

Students were directed to create five different drawings:
  1. Draw what the final animal will look like. Students need to show three different views:
    1. Top view
    2. Side view
    3. Front view
  2. Draw what the armature will look like
    1. Be specific about how the cardboard or wire will look or fasten together. Include in your sketch specifics about where the electronics will go and the battery compartment. 
  3. Draw the schematic for your electrical circuit. Decide if you will use a series or parallel circuit. Please include correct symbols for each electrical component.


There will be a test on the Elements and Principles of Design along with Color Theory:
  • Mixing colors - primary, secondary, tertiary
  • Tint, tone, shade
  • Analogous
  • Complimentary
  • Also how to make black!
