< ran across a lesson in an old art book for newspaper cities. You fold a
little square of newspaper and cut out a building shape and when you open
it up, you have a symmetrical structure. I think this one was for a
Russian skyline with all of it's interesting buildings.
Anyway, being in a Christian school, I wanted to tailor it for a Christmas
theme.
I thought of Bethleham: Kind of Puebloish buildings, not much foliage, hot
colors, etc.
You cut out your buildings, etc. with colored tissue paper. Brush with
liquid starch. We had a few trees (for cool colors and interest) with cast
shadows. A star in a dk. blue sky shines down yellow rays over the scene
and it's really beautiful. ran across a lesson in an old art book for
