Easy Animal Drawings

Do you have a hard time drawing animals? Many of Diane's students do and she came up with a solution. She found large pictures of dogs from a book on dog breeds. Using heavy vellum paper, the photo was taped to the underside of the vellum.
 The students then drew an outline of the dog's features with a black Sharpie.  The rest of the picture was filled in with water soluble markers as Crayola.
 The students were encouraged to have fun with the colors and to put in an environment so the viewer would know where the dog was - inside or outside. Some students named their dogs and added their favorite dog dish and bone.
                                                                                                                                                                      The finished art work can be displayed in a window since it is translucent or on a wall with white paper behind it.
Supplies needed:
        Heavy translucent vellum paper
   Black Sharpie
   Crayola markers
 Animal book or calendar
