“Pop”ping Rodeo Art Animals

Since we had just finished the Mola’s, the third graders were well versed in negative space, which them helped them draw from observation of the photos of farm animals I had provided for them. So on a small piece of paper, they drew, and drew, and drew. The were instructed to draw what they saw and not what they knew. Eg. If you can only see one eye in the photograph, you only draw one eye. This challenged a great many of them. As they slowly started to draw what they saw, the exceptional drawings started to surface!

Once those were done they traced them onto a piece of Styrofoam and then…WE PRINTED!
