If you are working on the collaborative piece, then you will continue to do so. The piece will be due Friday, so make sure that the work that is left is equally distributed. One person should be responsible for compositing all of the work. Then the group can work together to make the final adjustments.
If you have an independent piece upon which you are currently working, then you must finish it by Friday.
For those of you who have completed your work you will begin this project: MY IDEAL WORLD

What animals are seen together that normally are enemies?
What may be another illustration of this type of unorthodox relationships?
What does this relationship symbolize?
Look up works done by Piet Mondrian. Though he did not create Utopias in his artwork, he did consider Utopian ideals. Mondrian focused on his Utopian ideal of harmony and order pushed his abstraction to achieve his famously simple works.
