Today the class continued developing the habitats for their mask creatures. Last week Alice introduced collage making as a way to explore habitats. Today students spent most of the class finding and creating pictures that best fit their ideas of where their mask characters live. We had a few more interviews to do today, a couple students were finishing painting and many collages were made.
In addition to habitat, Alice suggested that students search for images that would reveal more information about their characters; like the kinds of food they eat. A few students really liked this idea.
Alice introduced the idea of mixed media collage to the class today. She showed examples that included paper and paint in collages.
Next week we will finish collages and record a few more interviews!
