At school, students in grades 6-8 collaborated in small groups to create a chimera (animal hybrid). Now working at home, students received the assignment to create a visual of their chimera’s habitat. It could be anywhere in the world, but the flora and fauna would be native to that habitat. Given the different resources and materials available at home, compared to school, a wide variety of artistic outcomes was acceptable.
Students showed immense creativity with the art materials they found at home. They used collage, slideshows, diagrams, drawings, textiles, and 3D construction to convey the necessary information.
It was an impressive demonstration of independence drawing on skills learned over many years of Mustard Seed art classes.
