For each project series you will write a final reflection. Take a look at The Reflection Questions to Guide Your Thinking
This exemplar portfolio is a wonderful example of a student who kept pace with posting photos and reflections of every assignment and thoughtful, insightful reflective writing.
This is a great sample of a student planning drawing that shows the process of gathering ideas in Thumbnail drawings and the final drawing of what the student intended to make.
Here is a sampling of what our students were working on in their first and second projects last year. After each new technique, I ask kids to use the technique to self design a new piece that challenges them to try something a bit more of a stretch with the technique. This will help solidify their new knowledge and asks them to engage their own creativity. A great example of how this moves kids towards their own artistic horizon can be seen if you scroll down to take a look at Jakob’s swan. Nice effort for a second piece, don’t you agree?
