What is a mandala????
 
Mandala-a circular design containing concentric geometric forms and often uses radial symmetry! 

While we usually create mandalas in the art room with specific measurements, rulers, color schemes, and repeating patterns.   That is not an option right now!   

 I am suggesting that you create a different kind of mandala using found objects in or around your home.   It doesn’t always have to be paper and pencil projects.  Be creative and have fun.  
Here are some examples.

Pablo Picasso started a movement called Cubism.  It was drawing a face as if you were looking at someone from all directions as the same time.   He used bold lines and bright colors.   Create a funky face in the style of Pablo Picasso.

You do not need a ton of art supplies to create amazing art.   A basic still life can be very detailed, a simple subject,  and beautiful. In this lesson we are gonna set up and draw a still life.  Make sure you set up your subject in layers to show depth and shadow in your drawing.  

What is a still life?
 a painting or drawing of an arrangement of objects, typically including fruit and flowers and objects contrasting with these in texture, such as bowls and glassware.
"Value" simply means how light or dark something is.
A drawing is said to be a value drawing when it is in black and white, when it has no color. Black, white, and the many shades of gray in between the two are called values (and sometimes tones).

For this assignment you will only need paper and pencil.  You will achieve different values by the amount of pressure you use while drawing.    Set yourself up a still life using items around your house.   Examples:  makeup, bottles, dishes, fruit, art supplies, etc.  ( Be creative)

Draw a still life with many values to show light and shading.

Mrs. Dawn Hensley asks, "Could you make it as an Uber driver?" (Business Education)
In this dynamic simulation game, students will play the role of a full-time Uber driver with two kids to support, and a $1000 mortgage payment due in a week.
Students will learn how to think and act like an entrepreneur. Do they chase the surge in order to try and capture that premium pricing? Do they invest in mints, water and snacks in hopes of garnering larger tips? Do they work weekends or seek to balance Ubering with their family life? Students are in the "drivers' seat" :) in making these decisions and more. Enjoy!

This chef from the Culinary Institute of America teaches us how smell and taste interact to create flavor.  It turns out that "flavor" isn't only about taste...  it is about aroma as well. Chemicals present in the food are released into the air and these chemicals signal to our brains what we are eating through receptors in our tongue and in our nasal passages.
