During this unit students learned about reflections, transferring materials, and blending complementary colors to achieve richer colors and tones. Students were challenged to create their own landscape whether it be natural or more of a city scene on half a piece of paper. Transferring black crayon to the opposite side students saw how easily a symmetrical reflection could be made. Crayon color experimentation brought these landscapes to life which included texture. Students used either watercolor or crayon for their reflection side keeping in mind a consistency in color to keep symmetry throughout the process.
In this unit students learned about tessellations, pattern design, setting up and drawing a still life, complementary colors, directional lighting and the interesting shading technique stippling. Students used multiple materials for this project and had to follow several objectives online.
