Dog Multimedia Paintings

We first did a study about eyes and students looked at pictures of dogs and painted their eyes (eye lids, pupil,iris, and reflection of light) on index cards. Then we looked very closely at the noses and painted them on large index cards. Then students used the poster boards that we use as place mats on the tables. They already have paint all over them, to create a LARGE painting of a dog with bold brush strokes, lots of different bright colors and outline with oil pastels.

The paintings below were done with third grade as a complimentary color study

  2. These are absolutely wonderful!! I love the idea of using index cards to zero in on the eyes and nose. I would frame any of these for my home - the top one is my personal favorite. Were these all 3rd graders? I wish I could have been there for this lesson.
    Great post!
