5th graders used the quote,
"Shoot for the Moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." Brian Litrell
I challenged them to use black, white & grey while still emphasizing the design, important areas and details. We talked about what words in the quote were the most important. Using bigger size, bolder line, shading and creativity with these words could really improve the illustration.
I gave them 2- 45 minute classes to create the designs. Some decided to shoot for the moon by taking their designs home for art homework.
I am happy with these results and hope the images inspire you too!
