We Care Arts is a non-profit organization that helps emotionally, mentally and physically disabled adults and youth achieve greater personal independence. Through a variety of art classes and experiences, we promote the artist's individuality, self esteem, community skills, ability to focus, life skills, responsibility, confidence and job skills.
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.
