We traveled from St. Petersburg to Moscow. In Moscow we visited the Red Square and Of course the famous St. Basil's Cathedral. I was in awe and couldn't believe how colorful and breathtaking it was!
So I always wanted to study this beautiful piece of Architecture.
We talked about the St. Basil's cathedral, terms, like onion dome, spire, arch, etc.
So the students used rulers to create straight lines for their towers, then created onion domes and spires and they were allowed to create their own "creative"towers, to show a more individual thought.
We talked about how to add textures in "clusters" to show that the towers were a texture but just a hint so it wouldn't look so cluttered.
AND of course, focused on bright and bold colors influenced by St. Basil's Cathedral!
Let's check them out.
I will update with other finished projects once completed this week! THey were allowed to experiment with a twist on the towers with more creative and modern tower designs.
