3rd Grade Birds

This week, the third grade students learned about artist Charley Harper. His graphic illustrations of wildlife include a wide variety of animals, but we chose to focus on his birds.  The students were given various shape templates and french curves to create their drawings.  They finish by tracing over them with permanent marker and painted them in with bright tempera.
