A great lesson from colleague blogger of Artisan des Arts.
- white drawing sheet A4 size
- markers (not waterproof)
- jar with water
- chalk pastels
- scissors and glue
Students draw a Dali inspired elephant and trace it with a marker. I gave them some 'how to draw' templates. Take a wet brush and go over the lines, so the water turns into watercolour. Let dry.
Draw a horizon line and a sun. Colour the background with chalk pastels and blend with your fingers. Draw shadows of the elephant's legs. Maybe they don't have the right direction, but that's part of surrealism!
Cut a piece of felt for a blanket, decorate it and paste it on the elephant.
All artworks are made by students of grade 4
