This is the second time I've done this project & it's still a success! The students just love drawing dogs! I originally borrowed this idea from Deep Space Sparkle,but have since made a few changes of my own!
After discussion students drew their dogs. I did 3 different examples on the board, and students chose which one they wanted to follow along with.
Day 2: Students painted their dogs. I set out the neutral colors and students mixed tints and shades to create the fur on their dog. I also passed out gold paint for the crown. When they were done painting, I had them trace over their pencil lines with black paint.
Day 3: Students first cut out their dog, and then set it to the side as they worked on the background paper. For the background, students used texture plates and crayons to crate rubbings. After their paper was full of rubbings and texture, they chose 1 color of watercolor paint to fill in the rest. Last step, glue the dog on!
