I shared 2 images with them for this project. The first was the atari logo and thte other was a skateboard design that looks like it was inspired by the atari logo a little bit.
Students started by shaping their decks out of a long rectangle piece of paper. They drew their city sky line next and filled it in with black. Next, they decided what kind of motion they wanted to create in their sky and added pencil lines to convey it. These lines were traced in black crayon and they could then paint their sky with both warm and cool colors. I showed students how they could make a colo darker or bolder by painting it, moving onto another part, and then going back and adding another coat of that color.
