Drawing Animals

WE TALKED ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FISH, MAMMALS, AMPHIBIANS AND REPTILES. THIS BECAME A SCIENCE CLAUS AS WELL AS ART. I ENCOURAGED THEM TO TOUCH THE TOY ANIMAL TO HELP THEM PICK UP ON THE TEXTURE. I ENCOURAGED THEM TO USE LIGHT COLORS. EVEN IF THE COLOR WAS “WRONG.” IF ANYONE EVER WORRIES ABOUT HURTING A STUDENTS “STYLE” OR CREATIVITY I THINK THIS ARRAY OF GRADES 1-3 OUGHT TO GIVE THEM COMFORT.
THE PROCESS WAS TO DRAW IN PENCIL, WATER COLOR,THEN  GO BACK WITH FINE LINE PENS.
Different ages and different students have different ways of seeing.
