Pet Portraits Camp (Ages 6-10)

Let's make art exploring the basic, yet profound concepts of line, shape, color, texture and pattern to create a "pet portrait". Students will use pencil, crayon and tempera paint to portray a real or imaginary animal friend or the possibility of a totem animal. We will begin with sketches and discussions on habitat, landscape and environment. All materials included.
