As my partner, Ruhi and I started the assignment we were perplexed. Our initial plan was to take the jar, wagon, blue and white paper, straw, bead, and a paper holder and make a city. However, as we looked around us, we realized how everyone in the class was making something versus merely putting a theme to it like we were. So our second plan was to create an animal, we chose a dog. We started to use the wagon as its body and then began to build around it. I am proud to say that we ended up using everything in our bag, to the best of our ability. In the end, I think my partner and I agreed that our animal looked more like a cat instead of a dog. Although our initial plan was to make a dog and that did not happen, I did learn how to improvise and how to freehand my creativity.
When I look at my creation, I can’t help but think of my 1st-grade self-drawing. It reminds me of how I used to draw and build things in elementary school. I would like to call my cat, Mr. Whiskers.
