Our Next Step: Developing Thumbnail Sketches from our Mindmaps

Grade 11 students are continuing to develop ideas for #Canada150 artworks by following the steps in the Design Process.  Last week, we developed mind maps that helped us share our ideas about our topic.  Take a look through some of the examples here.

Now that we have created mind maps, our next step is to prioritize what is important to us.  We will look at all of our ideas in our mind maps and create thumbnail sketches for the most important ideas.

It will be interesting to see students make decisions about their most important ideas, and to watch them develop sketches for their artworks!
