Salvador Dali Elephants and Surrealistic Creatures
This week we have been studying about Salvador Dali. I was inspired by the beautiful elephant projects done by Mary at http://marymaking.blogspot.com/
and she got the ideas from these awesome blogs below!!
We started by watching this great video about Salvador Dali
and I showed them how to draw the elephant in these 6 simple steps! We talked about the Indian elephants and how they are adorned with fine linens and jewels! We talked about the endangered elephants species.
We used washable markers and then painted them with water! We made shadows behind their feet and then they had to draw a horizon line and create a background with chalk pastel
Then we added fabric
They were allowed to use drawing books and create other surreal creatures as well! I will post more when they are finished!
