Mixed Media students have finished the collage portion of their project and are using the grid system to draw an enlarged section of an area of their choice. Students placed a 6 x 6 inch "frame" over their collage and drew a 1 inch grid over it. On their 12 x 12 inch drawing paper, they drew a 2 inch grid so they can compare individual boxes and where shapes meet the edges of the boxes to create a proportional drawing.
Some of the students have started to add color to their drawings. For this projects students must use chalk pastels and watercolor pencils, but can also incorporate other materials if they choose.
