It was a large undertaking which took 5 months of work and a scientific and well organised approach. It works well.

What did the students learn from this exercise? Well, I can’t discover the official answer to that question. Teamwork must be an important part of the project.

I would also mean really looking at the subject matter and seeing the shadows and highlights etc..

It is nice that they decided to represent a cat.
