Bright Lights, Big Cities

5th grade students explored the use of rulers and templates to create crisp, carefully designed architectural city drawings that focused on overlapping and patterns.  They then traced those drawings onto heavier paper and we discussed the concept of a monochromatic color scheme.  Students chose a color and mixed many shades and tints to color their cities. They had to paint carefully and think about layers and edges.  Eliminating all the white paper was a must.
