Here are 2 student samples of my beginning of year assignment - 25 designs. The art on the left is by a grade 3 student and the right is by a grade 7 student. The concept here is bright colours (pencil crayons) and a variety of shape and form with a focus on detail. The sudent's name should appear somewhere in the design.
