Light and structure



The structure of the parking garage combines with images, colors and textures to create a unique presentation or Pablo Valbuena. Now it is your turn to be creative. Look for some type of texture or structure in the St. Petersburg Times. You can look for a photo, cartoon or image in an advertisement. Re-create the structure on a piece of paper using any type of medium. Now decide on a theme for your art based on the structure you have found. Create a three-dimensional piece of art using the image you found as your base. Create a short essay discussing your thought process for your creation. Share your artwork and essay with your class. You also can submit your artwork for inclusion in Xpress Plugged In. Go to, and click on the XPI link for directions. Share your short essay here on the NIE Blogging Zone.
