In this class students will explore a variety of media while incorporating mammals, birds, fish and reptiles into a variety of settings (sea, sky, desert, etc.).
Each class begins with a step by step lesson in drawing the animal’s body and face and then students will have free choice of different projects from the following:
• Large scale drawings with beeswax crayon blocks
• Baby animals in a matchbox (fimo clay)
• “pet rocks”
• Tempera stenciling with collage
• Painted paper collages (acrylic, cut in pieces to make shapes of landscape or animals)
• Bird masks with feathers
Each student should bring in a printed photo of a pet or a favorite stuffed animal.
