Birds in color!

 Shae is adding a colored pencil background to contrast with the collage on the bird.
 The second lesson in the unit about birds required students to work with the same image in a different way. I thought it would be beneficial for the kids to reproduce their photo using colorful media, so I chose magazine collage and colored pencils. The concept was that through careful observation each bird picture could be created to show a range of values in the full spectrum of color.
Most students found this assignment to be more challenging than the ebony pencil assignment! I think that the results are wonderful and the lesson provided students with a wealth of new techniques as well as information about color theory.
