Titanic through the Portholes by P4W
Inspired by the large portholes we created in the classroom showing Titanic’s engineering features, your task is to create three smaller ones. First step is to draw round an object with a circular base to give you three identical portholes.
Next, using the information you found in your research task last week, choose three features found in first class. Create a detailed drawing of one of the features in each circle. For example you might draw the passengers swimming in the pool in one of them.
When you have finished the inside use crayon or pen to make them look just like you are looking through the portholes from outside the ship.
