Unity as a class

I was inspired once again by Arteascuola!  I admire Miriam soooo much!  She does wonderful work with her kids and her style alines with mine often.  I tried her lesson but changed the medium.  She used colored pencil and I used oil pastel.  Our's turned out OK but I think Miriams are better, I like the controlled look of the colored pencil.   

I also changed the direction of the shadow.   Again, Miriam has the right idea because her shadows go to the back.  As you can see in the image below, When the pictures were hung there were some places that the shadow was cut off by the edge of the paper.  Miriam had her shadows going behind the objects and now so dramatically.

Overall, I think the lesson was a good one for unity and I'm proud of my 7th graders for doing such a great job!

To see more projects featuring the Principle of Unity check out my past post using crayons, candy canes, or bones.
