We began working on designing and drawing treehouses to enter them into the Mariposa Art Council Young Masters Art Exhibition. This year’s theme is “dreams,” so we are designing the treehouse of our dreams! Students first learned about parallel lines and angles to give their drawings the perspective of standing at the base of a tree. They practiced on whiteboards first and then transferred their ideas onto watercolor paper. We are trying a new technique of using washable markers as watercolor. So far they looking great!
All research groups are having a fun time working hard to create Google Slide presentations of their ancient civilization. Most groups should be done by next week and will be presenting them to the class the following week.
