Animals, Art and Artist Habits of Mind

In Kinder and First Grade

Practicing taking our time and looking closely we notice things that may otherwise be missed.  The first day children chose animal figurines to practice 2 drawing techniques, shape and outline.  The second day, we looked at our sketches and selected our favorite one.  Using the original sketch as a reference animals and settings were then painted on a much larger format. Check out the video below to see it all in action!

  1. That little video was excellent. I love seeing what the kids actually do along with their results. It makes so much more sense. Thank you.
