Symbols, Cartouches, and Noble Self Portraits

Homework due Wednesday: Review the Egyptian Code of Art worksheet. Use the Code rules to sketch a self portrait as if you were an Egyptian noble. You may add symbols and accessories to show more about yourself, if you wish. Items like musical instruments, tools of art, or sports equipment are acceptable; weapons and items from pop culture, such as video games or cell phones, are NOT acceptable. Spend a minimum of 15 minutes on this sketch.

Today's activities: All sections worked on completing the cartouche project, after a discussion about symbols. 6A and 6B participated in a musical symbol exercise.

Tomorrow's plan: Complete any unfinished cartouches, share homework sketches, group work on symbol making.

This week's goals: Read and discuss an Egyptian myth, practice pantomime, create short pantomime myths to perform on Friday.
