We did 'bird's eye view' of the turtles (very 2-D - like they were run over
by a truck - but I didn't mention this to them!), most designs ended up
symmetrical, but I didn't insist on it. Most kids drew an oval 'border'
within the oval shape of the shell, and decorated within those lines, and
then did another design within the center - some did flower shapes, some did
hearts with radiating lines, some did geometric designes like a kaleidoscope
(sp.?), I showed many different ideas in our practice pictures. I talked
about starting in the middle of the turtle with a shape (diamond, circle,
etc..) and then adding lines and shapes around it to make it more
interesting. We also decorated the legs all the same with different lines.
A few kids did side views of the turtles. I like when they take my ideas
and make them their own. Thanks for asking. :)
