Four Projects

Today we introduced four different projects. It was explained that students are to pick one of the four project ideas:

  1. Landscape Painting - Must be of Glacier National Park imagery (Atmospheric Perspective)
  2. Bird's Eye View Perspective Painting - Perspective Painting 
    1. After some deliberation some students chose to create one of the following in this genre:
      1. One Point Perspective
      2. Two Point Perspective
      3. Three Point Perspective
  3. Large Scale Polyhedron Sculpture - George Hart has many great ideas for large paper or cardboard constructions
  4. Cardboard Sculptures - Create a large scale sculpture in the style of an artist for example: 
    1. Alexander Calder
    2. Keith Haring
    3. Picasso
Students researched ideas in many different ways:
  1. Classroom books/magazines
  2. Library
  3. Computers
  4. Student's own images
