Luminary Project Sketches

In preparation for your Luminary Project, you will be doing sketches in your notebook or on the blank page provided in your assignment packet. Please be sure to include all of the following aspects in your sketches in order to receive full credit for the assignment!

1. Write 2-3 sentences describing your dream. Include why you have chosen to represent this dream, and how you will show the viewer what your dream is.

2. Draw your luminary box and color it in! Include details like where you will cut out shapes.

3. Draw each side that you will need to cut out and write the measurements of each. This will make it easier to create a paper template in class.

This assignment is due Friday December 1st, or early for extra credit!
