Fifth graders painted themselves with colored light.
A world filled with colors.
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.
Teacher Gloria Elena says that the exercise of form drawing develops order, dexterity, space abstraction, self-control and self-confidence.
Anastacio, fifth grade student, comments that from this exercise he enjoyed installing the form drawings into ropes tightened from trees to observe the sunlight projected on the floor. He also indicates that at, some point, he would love to replicate the exercise to install the “stained glass” on his house surrounding trees.
