New Years resolution project

This idea was presented at the Missouri District 9 art show in 2012 by Carl Junction Junior High art instructor Elizabeth Cosby.

Here's what we do: we look at what a New Year's resolution, and look at examples. Students start by dividing the paper for design variety. We chose to use a diamond pattern. Then, students must decide on a resolution, and simplify it to a one or two word phrase. This is written large and turned into block, bubble, etc. letters. Then we color and fill with pattern. Display! Commit! Resolve! Grow!
