Greenwich Village has been through many transitions of architectural styles since the first structures were built in the late 1700s. The art community developed in the middle of the 19th century. Now, the popular and active New York City neighborhood is referred to as “the Village.” The location contains a wide range of historic architecture that spans the years. For example; Late Victorian, Second Empire, Mansard architectural styles and more. Here are the types of architecture you can expect to find while walking the streets of Greenwich Village.

TRANSPARENT ILLUSION

Create a series of 5 images for a transparent sticker project.  They should be in black and white with heavy line weight. The drawings can be created by hand (ex. sharpies) or digitally through PSD or AI.
The stickers will be placed one or more windows. Consider the transparency, scale, placement, and perspective.
A printed photograph will be presented for the critique which should show a convincing illusion.

LASER WARE ASSIGNMENT (Inspirations)
Historical, cultural and modern jewelry designs, as well as materials you have around you, can serve as inspirations for the bracelet or necklace you design and make for your peer. Research on your own to come up with desired outcomes.

Examples:
1. Images of Egyptian and Baroque historical jewelry below show how their style and construction have remained a timeless inspiration for the way jewelry is designed and made today.
2. The modern designs below reflect the trends and examples of what can be made as laser cut outcomes. The materials will differ as metal is not an option with the laser cutter. (The list of materials you can use when laser cutting.)
