    •  Nature walks and/or dumpster dives in class Find some small, interesting objects both natural and man-made. Put them in your Zip Loc Bag Not too dirty or dangerous please!
    •  Sketch your objects using weighted line. Zoom in, crop, try different angles. Optional: “treasure hunt” at home for more things – sketch them and /or bring next class Try sharpies to simplify Sample sketches
    •  Research “nature vs. culture” theme in art Print/sketch an example you like; journal about artist Links online to help Angkor Vat, 9th Century temple from Optional-more items Khmer Empire, (Cambodia)
    •  Combine & draw your objects in a still life (do several thumbnails) OR combine your sketches in visually interesting ways (thumbnails) Feel free to repeat, edit, or abstract shapes & forms
    •  Tape edges of your paper Complete final sketch LIMITED color palette – triadic or analogous work well Watercolors and sharpies (happy accidents) Class demo on watercolor Add accent lines at end if needed
