Rhombus / Cube collaborative project

3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students created a collaborative art project.  Each student colored three rhombus shapes using crayons and colored pencils; the top color was based on their grade level.  3rd grader cubes have a green top, 4th graders have blue tops and 5th graders have purple tops.  Once the three rhombus shapes were put together they create the illusion of a cube. The rhombus on the right is fill with words, including the students name and characteristics or interest about themselves.  The rhombus on the left is a drawing representing the individual student.  The overall construction of the mural is based on L.A. street artist Thank You X.

Triangle / Rhombus Group Project

1st and 2nd graders created a group triangle/rhombus project.  After students chose a colored construction paper triangle they then took a white triangle and folded it in half then again on both sides, like a paper airplane.  Once flatten, their paper shows four triangles that students colored using crayons.
