Cats 🐱 & Dogs πŸΆ

This is one of my favorite lessons.

Students started with an eye study on how to draw realistic animal eyes. They used oil pastels for coloring. Students then began to paint on newspaper. Once dried students ripped and shredded the newspaper πŸ“° and glued onto their blank canvas.

Students then placed the eyes and nose over the newspaper and painted more in-depth details to create their cats and dogs. Multi step lesson with amazing results ❀️🎨😻🐢🀩
