The objective: transformation, metamorphosis, or manipulation of one object into another. 

 The 8th grade art class of Mr. Wiltse was presented with this problem.  Critical thinking, problem solving and artistic skills were necessary for successfully creating an interesting transformation. After deciding on the objects of transformation, students completed a series of eight drawings. Although many approaches can be used to develop the project, the following series was created as a cartoon line drawing.

 The eight drawings were then developed into a visual podcast. The result is creative commentary on the American fast food industry.
