Students were given the challenge to use paper, and other 2d or found objects, to create a non-traditonal hat design. After using my teacher website as a resource, we began creating origami shapes (crane, flower, leaf). We talked about the capabilities of paper in becoming a 3d form through folds and pleats.
After a few days folding origami (which we later used for classroom beautification) the sketching process began. After 6 designs were created we had "mini elbow partner critiques" to help finalize our directions. Then is was work, work, work for a week.
So in awe over these amazing creations! more to come!
