Today third graders completed their Dog paintings. We looked at lots of colorful dog pictures and artwork like this painting below by Kaytee Esser, Blue Dog paintings by George Rodrigue, and many more….
We talked about the bright colors and how many of the images had mostly warm colors on the dog and cool colors in the background or the opposite. They drew their dogs and painted them with liquid watercolors.
When the paintings were completed, we added details and outlined with oil pastels!
I did a similar lesson with fifth grade a few years ago. You can see them here:
