|The assignment was a challenge as the children and I were needing to draw a picture of a dog free hand. The method introduced this week was taking a black and white drawing and splitting it in half...|
|and using that as our drawing guide.|
|Next we used oil pastels to color it in using many colors to add texture and depth to our drawings.|
|MarioFan's drawing-- he has come a long way with his drawing abilities since starting this program. I remember days when he became very frustrated at the though of free drawing anything. I only assisted a tiny bit on the ears.|
|My version -- it is the only one that doesn't look like a dog-- I think it looks more like a mountain lion.|
I always do these art lesson with my kids to show an example and also so they see my struggles with some of the drawing techniques. This helps them to know it doesn't have to be perfect but you have to try and you might be surprised how it turns out. We are continuing to enjoy these lessons.
