Unity - Crayons. This project was all about unity. 7th grades projects focus on an art principle. Here the kids had a unified subject, medium, technique, and substrate. What a great way to understand this concept. The kids all used a tracer (template?) - created via http://pinthemall.net
Mind you, if you're a Drawing student and you learn how to perceive negative-space, and you take into consideration your format (maybe by using a viewfinder) these will come naturally. But remember "Form follows function," and good design should 1) Capture attention 2) Hold attention and 3) Direct Attention and your compositions will have impact and be effective.
