I had a hard time coming up with a large sheet of dark blue paper for Lesson 4, so we skipped forward to Lesson 5. We'll go back to Lesson 4 another time.
"Zoo Animals" is another lesson on media. Tessa primarily used glue and chalk to create a fairly unique piece of art. She learned to draw with glue and "color" by smoothing and blending chalk with her fingers.
This lesson must be completed over two days since it requires a full 24 hours for glue to dry.
|After selecting a plastic antelope as a model, Tessa first sketched her design onto warm-up paper and then a sheet of black poster board.|
Next, Tessa traced her sketch with school glue. We typically use glue sticks for our art projects, so she found this more challenging than we both expected.
|After the glue dried and left an embossing of Tessa's antelope sketch, she "colored" in her design by rubbing and blending chalk with her fingers. She really enjoyed this part of the project.|
|Tessa completed zoo animal! She was very pleased with her final product. She thought it a neat project.|
