He dropped ink into a jar water and observed how the ink suspended in the water. He then created a series of charcoal drawings.


  1. Love the variety of ways that students approached the assignment! Do you find students more readily find a unique solution to the projects now that you've been using choice for some time now?

  2. Nice work - love the personal self-inquiry!

  3. Wow! Love the ink observation turned to charcoal drawings, love the shoes, love them all... Just wow!
