Use compositional choices to direct the viewer through your image.
Danica Vu from Columbia Elementary School, with her winning holiday design.
What symbols do you see in these images?
Brainstorm different ideas for symbols that would represent each holiday.
Put it all togethEr
In each of the following images, identify the symbols and the holiday that they represent. Also, identify which compositional choices the artist made to create emphasis and set the mood.
Start with thumbnail sketches
Make 3 or more thumbnail sketches. Each sketch should clearly depict a holiday by use of symbols. Use the compositional design choices as a guide. Each sketch should quickly direct the viewer’s eye towards one or more symbol(s).
