Project Overview:

 

The name of the hot sauce company is up to you...

A hot sauce that comes in three different flavors/temperatures:

CERBERUS - Original Recipe
Overview:  Latin form of Greek Kerberos, meaning "demon of the pit." In mythology, this is the name of the three-headed dog that guards the entrance to Hades.

DIABOLOS - A step up from our Original Recipe
Overview: Greek name meaning "accuser, slanderer." In the bible, this is a title for Satan, the prince of demons and author of evil, who estranges men from God and entices them to sin. Figuratively, the devil is a man who, by opposing the cause of God, may be said to act the part of the devil or to side with him.   

PERSEPHONE - The Hottest of the Hot’s
Overview:  Greek name probably composed of the elements persô "person; human being" and phonos "murderer, slayer," hence "person-slayer." In mythology, this is the name of a goddess of the underworld, the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. Her Roman name is Proserpina.

Experimental Project: Markers
Project Name: Zen Doodle

Project Overview: 

The term ‘Zentangle’ was coined by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Roberts had noticed that the focus that Thomas had while drawing, was similar to the meditative state he had learned as a monk – what is often referred to as “flow“. They then set out to develop a system allowing almost anyone to follow and use as a way to relax and express themselves creatively.

 

Specifications: Using the supplied materials the students will complete the cubism assignment... See Examples
