Two Cats and a Dog
"Two Cats and a Dog" is a lesson on shape. It reviews line and introduces the concept of overlap as well. Out of the Atelier lessons so far, this one was the most challenging for Tessa. She has a hard time looking at an object or drawing and duplicating it with accuracy. Cutting out the dog gave her a few fits as well. We probably need to brush up on her cutting skills. If we had it to do over again, I would probably have her use a glue stick instead of school glue. I forgot how wavy school glue can leave paper after it dries.
|Tessa began by drawing a cat shape and then filling it with different types of lines.|
|After drawing two cats and a dog, Tessa cut them all out.|
|Following the teacher on the DVD's instructions, Tessa arranged and then glued her critters so that they overlapped in two places. For the finishing touch, she pasted a red fabric bandanna onto the dog's neck.|
