When we return to school, Tuesday, students will be learning about the Chinese New Year January 31st 2014. The horse is this year's symbol on the Chinese Zodiac!
Here are some steps to draw a horse. Students will then use other elements like the Chinese symbol for horse, lanterns, cherry blossoms, etc. to create their own original artwork based on 2014 Chinese New Year! I cannot wait to see their unique creations next week! Here is a link with a lesson and great video for the Traditional Chinese New Year Lion Dancers
sketch the circles VERY lightly because they will need to be erased later
the circles create a realistic structure for the body of the horse.
