Adding detail to the symbols seems to challenge the students as they are encouraged to look not at the whole shape but to focus on small areas as they proceed forward with this project.

This project has encouraged the students to reflect on the symbol and it’s meaning as they add their own input into the paintings.

We are taking a break from this painting project until the holidays have passed.  The students are learning that the process of creating a painting requires patience and develops skills, thoughtfulness and understanding.
