7th Grade - Alebrijes Project

In 7th Grade we have successfully have gone through the elements of design and color theory. We will now apply this to a three dimensional Mexican Folk Art project. Alebrijes are animals that came to the Pedro Linares to help him during the time of a severe illness. The animals helped him when he had developed an extremely high fever. He was rendered unconscious, and the animals helped him to heal.

If you have missed class please see the presentation Alebrijes so that you can get caught up. Students created four sketches of their Alebrijes animal in class:

  • Top view 
  • Side view 
  • Front view
  • Circuit view
Students will be using one or two LED's in their project. This leads to different types of artistic and engineering problems!
