Mandala Radial Designs

7th grades for the second semester focus on design for our first unit. Mandala Radial designs is the first and really only project I will be doing in the design unit this semester. 

we talked about symmetry as well as asymmetry (when things are not equal). They really seemed to like the work.

Once they completed their symmetrical designs, we turned them into radial designs using the pie slice as part of an 8 slice circle. 

I am really excited to see how they come out in the end with all the color.

Personal Narrative Drawings

As one of the first studio projects of the semester I like to have the students complete a drawing dealing with who they are and what they like. The Personal Narrative Drawings seem to work the best. I got the lesson from The Incredible Art Dept. I love this site and get a lot of good inspiration from it.
