Grade 11 Pastel Drawings (AVI3M-AVI3O)

This year I haven't focused on making new assignments for my students to do- with an upcoming maternity leave (yay!) I wanted to have the semester go as smoothly as possible with tried and truly successful assignments.  However, after a trip to Spain in March and seeing a lot of Gaudi and Picasso, I was inspired to make a new assignment for the grade 11 pastel unit.  For this piece, the students were asked to use a photograph that they took themselves, break it into shapes of their choice, and put it back together in a new composition.  I LOVE the results and will probably keep this assignment in rotation for a long time.  I'm sorry that I didn't get photos of the entire classes's work (I'm not sure what happened).  Please enjoy what is here.
