Students learned about the art movement Photorealism for this insect unit. Using Prismacolor colored pencils students experimented with color matching to find their exact color looking at a photo. Using repurposed electrical wire students then manipulated and connected it to recreate their original insect. This second process was more abstract with less control than the first.
