Once their sketch was finished, they moved on to a larger sheet of paper and refined their design. Changes could be made, as long as they were not wholesale. I wanted to see a connection between planning and refining. They traced their contours with fine tip markers and then added color to the scene. I encouraged them to use color patterns and modeled how to press hard and soft to create more color variety.
We wrapped things up by writing about how they created unity, why they chose their included patterns, and what they had the most success with in the project.
