Project: Hanging Gardens of Babylon
This is a project that is completed by all students in the Foundations courses.
According to legend, the Hanging Gardens were built, so Nebuchadnezzar's bride would not miss the mountains of her Median home.
If you were designing hanging gardens what would they look like?
You can draw, build out of paper, Lego's, blocks, anything you have available. The only thing I ask is you snap a picture and describe all the items you require for your amazing gardens. I will post my version later in the week.
Your requirement is be extremely creative.
Now that you have watched the videos let's practice. Using a standard piece of notebook paper start writing your ABC's. Be sure to keep your vertical's going straight up. Try to create your own style that still has an architectural feel.
After you complete your ABC's letter a short paragraph about yourself.
Continue this for a few minutes everyday. Not only will your writing become easy to read, but your drawings will appear more organized. Text is important for describing any drawing.
