6RJ’s Masterpiece Projects-2013

They have arrived!!! The Masterpieces are complete and now being displayed in the library at Mulgrave. If you get a chance, please check them out. As each year passes that this assignment is given, I am continually impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of these beautiful projects.

Students were given the task of choosing a famous architect and creating a “Masterpiece” that is inspired by the style of that architect. In addition, students needed to make connections to all three lines of inquiry. Their connections required them to describe the elements and principles of art, the mathematical concepts and lastly why their masterpiece is aesthetically pleasing.

The last component of this assignment was for students to give an oral presentation demonstrating the new knowledge and connections between their chosen architect and their Masterpiece. The students did a fantastic job and shared their new found knowledge in interesting and creative ways. Well done to everyone.
