This has been a great way to start the year with my advanced group! Collaborating with a fun project like this creates a safe and fun learning environment for the entire year. My students are working hard and enjoying the process. They are so proud of what they are creating and the laughter has been a joy to listen to.
One of my goals this year for my advanced students is to improve their planning process. I felt some of their compositions last year were not as strong as they could have been due to poor planning. I want to help them develop stronger sketches so when they execute the project it has a better foundation. I am excited because this collaboration project will remind them of perspective techniques that I hope to see utilized throughout the year.
A popular question has been about tape. I put my kids into groups of 4 and I give each group one roll of 1″ and one roll of 1/2″ tape. They might use 3/4’s of the roll. They have been using an exacto knife to split tape into smaller pieces. I found Uline is the best buy, but you have to buy $100 worth.
