    Welcome to Art, Turquoise Team!
    We have been working on Black and White Mandalas, and a frame for your mandala using overlapped shapes.
    We are also using ILLUSIONS to create 2 kinds of space in our drawing: shallow space with gray marker or tortillon, and deep space with areas of black marker. Continue to work on the completion of these beautiful drawings! Look up mandalas on Google and see how often this art form has been used throughout history. They are beautiful and amazing.
    If you finish your mandala (the drawing that "draws itself"), you should start work on The Jewel (or The Web), where you connect the dots (where lines intersect) of your ruled drawing and blend colored pencil in the spaces. Be sure to use shadow (gray) and deep space (black) to add illusion to your drawing.
    Good job so far...especially with cleanup - which is very important in Art class.
    See you in class!
