There are links to examples of posts that are good models for the Laser Wear Learning
Portfolio reflection.

3. COMPLETE A TWO PAGED SHORT READING on Nine of the Most Famous Greek Myths attached (here.) 

4. Based on your choices from the readings, create two interpretative drawings on 6×8″, 8×10″, or 8×12″ paper sizes. (In other words, I have 3 different sized etching plates leftover, so choose one size out of the three listed above for your two drawings) The images will serve as tracings for your printing process.
Once the two drawings are complete, put them on tracing paper or scan and print them in reverse. This way, the etchings will not print out backward when running through the printing press.

TO BRING for working in class:
-I will provide ALL of the supplies you need.
However, you have to complete the reading and drawing homework. Have it ready at the start of class. It will be uploaded to Canvas at that time.
