AWESOME!!! Now what?

PLANNING OUR FINAL
Today we will... 1. Learn about using VIEWFINDERS as a strategy for creating a composition from a still life 2. Create our own individual viewfinders 3. Make sure our narrative assemblages are finished and spray painted completely 4. Make 3 thumbnail sketches to prepare for our final project - each one should consider a different SIZE, VIEW, and/or PLACEMENT

VIEWFINDERS

1. Create a border around the piece of tagboard I give you (tracing a ruler is a really easy way to do this!)

2. Mark inches along one long side and one short side
