Illuminated Letters-- The 5th/6th grade

The 5/6s visited the Chazen Art Museum to see Medieval illuminated manuscripts.  These delicate and decorative books were amazing!  The students designed their own illuminated letter using inspiration from the illuminated manuscripts they observed.  Weused pencil, watercolor paints, colored pencils and gold inks on parchment paper.
