Fourth graders created basic shapes and turned them into monsters by adding many other basic shapes.
Students used pencil and marker to create their designs.
Students added texture, line and various sizes of geometric shapes to complete their monsters.
The next step was to add watercolor to their images.
There were many approaches to adding color as some students added a wash of various colors to their images.
Other students added specific colors to areas for a more detailed approach to their image.
Students added crayon to their images before a final wash was applied to create a resist on their project.
The fourth graders really enjoyed the process of creating their shape monster drawings.
Students engaged many different decision-making activities as a part of the creative process.
Students had to remain focused as they completed their images which are now on display at Richmond School.
Here are some examples of Shape monsters.
