Students trace their tiger using a sharpie so they will be able to see their black lines through the paint.
Students then paint the entire background of their canvas.
Once the paint dries students then paint their Tiger using black acrylic paint.
While waiting for paint to dry students brainstorm and sketch on black paper headphones, mustache, bows, ties, glasses, etc. to add to their final piece with glue.
The last step is using a Pollack technique splashing paint specks to the canvas as well as the dripping paint on the top.
