What did you do today? How?
Today, my group and I started our final draft after thinking how the elements we chose connect to Hundertwasser's style. We did this by reviewing the elements of Hundertwasser's paintings and what we should be aware of when we actually begin working on our final piece.
How do you think your group members went?
I think my group member has been efficient at all times. She not only worked hard but tried to help others and made sure that we both were on the right track. As a result, we were able to get everything done on time without any work left that we would have to do for homework.
What do you think of your progress so far? Why?
I guess my individual progress so far has gone pretty well because I was able to gain a lot of information about the materials my group and I are using such as thin cards, knives, etc. Also, I finished my work at all times by the end of the deadline and always communicated if I couldn't. In addition, I came up with unique designs that are connected to Hundertwasser's style for the surfaces of our project.
What is your group plan for next 5 classes?
Our group plan is to continue working on our final artifact and purchasing or getting any materials we need. We are also going to revise our plan if needed, and continue making the reflection videos for every class.

What did you personally achieve today? Describe.
Today, I mainly worked on tracing the shapes of our elements onto the thin card and cutting them out. I also worked a bit on designing the surfaces of our shapes.
How did the rest of the group do? Did they all have jobs and assist with the progress of your sculpture? Explain.
My team member worked very efficiently by always making sure we were both on track and tried to suggest ideas for our designs. Although she wasn't able to help on what I was doing because she was plastering some shapes, she worked hard on what she was doing. While she was plastering, I also tried to blow up some nets for bigger elements of our project.
What challenges did you face today?
The main challenge we faced today was on how we are going to make the shapes. We found out that the method we have used during the past sessions involved a lot of steps that took a long time. We had to cut out the nets, trace the shape of the nets, design and glue the tabs together. It was pretty obvious that if we continue working like this, we wouldn't be able to meet the deadline even if we stayed after school to work on it.
What are your last steps/plans to complete this task? (2 classes)
My group currently is planning to stay after school on April 21st so that we can work more on our project. If we think it would be difficult to finish by the due date even with this extra session, we are going to do some at home or schedule another session. Also, because we found some pre-made boxes that can be used as parts of our project, we are thinking of plastering them. Lastly, we are planning to buy some velcros that we can use for some parts of our project.
