This week is all about animals. Choose an art activity and check back next Monday for more at home art options. Of course, you are welcome to do as many of the options as you like!
DRAWING CHALLENGE: Draw a picture of an animal. Don't forget to show where it lives. What is the animal doing? Get as creative as you can!
COLORING: Here are some interesting animal coloring sheets. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1SSJy4feGNiekTDYiX2MLyfDYmJPblduS/view
MUSEUM EXPLORATION: Check out the Smithsonian Nation Museum of Natural history to discover more about animals. You can create an artwork based on what you find. https://naturalhistory.si.edu/visit/virtual-tour
STEP-BY-STEP: Try a Dream Bird collage like Eric Carle uses in his many books about animals. https://drive.google.com/file/d/14WshNsq4m_kl5lXYX2NA54N1fP4UfgLN/view
CREATE ONLINE: This website allows you to make crazy patterned art. It's like creating a collage without the cutting and pasting. http://scrapcoloring.com/
