Lively literature about animals will be our inspiration to create related hands-on art activities. We will create art with animal subjects
infusing basic elements of art (shape, line, color, pattern and texture) across a variety of 2D and 3D media including drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, and work in clay. We will investigate and discuss how various artists and illustrators depict animals, and students will be encouraged to reflect upon their art objects by writing poems or stories about their own creations.
