Grade 8 Bike drawing and painting

Riding a bicycle on the streets of Alexandria, Egypt is more or less tempting fate (better not tell my insurance company or they will drop me). One of my joys in life is peddling around aimlessly armed with a camera in search of the unknown or that ONE moment. In a couple of weeks I will be riding the streets of Barcelona and Vienna blending in with the landscape.

Somehow my classroom has become a bike refuge and therefore the object of a recent grade 8 art project. I flipped the bikes upside down and placed them in the center of the table. The objective was to focus on a section and not on the entire bike. Materials used were markers, pencils, pens, india ink, and paint on 13" x 19" paper.
