Product Description
This is a perfect intro project for high school that I've used in both art and photography classes. It gets students exploring composition and the elements and principles of art.

This asks them to do a postcard REMIX, that will end up with 6-8 new artwork compositions that are the size of the original postcard.

So it asks them to use the following:
-Postcards (at least 5-10 of the same one)
-Unlimited black and white photocopies of the postcard
[this way they can blow it up/play with contrast/shrink etc.)
-1 colour (optional)
-xacto knives, glue etc.
-anything they need for CREATIVE mounting of the final postcards

So it limits what they can use, and they have to really work through compositional elements to make new designs.
It's a real challenge!!

NOTE - you can get Postcards for super cheap at Walmart, but if they want to, I also let them use multiple copies of the same card (sympathy, birthday, newborn etc.) - they also work just fine.

Included in this assignment is:
-the requirements for the project
-a second page with a big exemplar that you can either project into the whiteboard or photocopy as part of the package
-a rubric to make marking easy


NOTE - there's a wicked handout for compositional elements here:

-I use it in every class I teach.

Enjoy! Such a challenging (cheap!) intro project, but they learn so much from it.
