Fifth grade students made an awesome exercise of “form drawing” in which they made something like a stained glass with colored cellophane and paperboard to project sunlight trough, filling the whole place with colors.  The exercise is part of the Form Drawing course, students drew planes with straight and curved lines until finding the forms that would be filled with cellophane paper of many colors.

He also indicates that at, some point, he would love to replicate the exercise to install the “stained glass” on his house surrounding...
