Chance Mythological Drawings

Chance Mythology based on surrealism

In this unit, students researched a mythological creature, read about Surrealism, watched a video on how people use myths and then played a game with an online dice roll to determine the head, torso/arms and lower body and legs of their creature. I asked them to mix human and animal parts since myths are often made of both.  They put images from the Internet into slides and then rolled the die.  They made sketches and then created a final image with shading.

Grace really explored her character!

Adrian mixed in cartoon characters.
