Students scanned, analyzed, and interpreted the theme of transformation through examples of ancient world sculptures. They analyzed how one character can become a symbol for a whole story. Students then planned and created their own painted clay character bust. Working in pairs with literacy specialist Jennifer Moran they created attributes of their characters, and then an origin story of their two characters. Next they scanned, analyzed, and interpreted 2-dimensional transformation artworks showing pairs in a part of a story. Each student then planned and created a color pencil illustration for the story they created.
