My Home and the Neighborhood
Sarah had us recreate our home and our neighborhood. The house we drew was to be a symbolic one - such as what we would have drawn when we were children. I drew my house as a single story, using dictionary paper as a faux shingle look for the roof and chimney. The front of the house is a pocket made from a paper bag that will hold the paper dolls I am still working on of myself and my family. Since I live near an 1849-era gold rush city in the Sierra Nevada Foothills where the architecture is predominately Victorian, I chose to draw my own version of Victorian-style homes for my neighborhood.
