This is an additional download that supports the video.
If you are looking for a completely unique and fun way to teach your students about Edgar Degas – this video (and templates provided) will do the trick! In this video I will teach you exactly how to do this lesson, along with a few variations that might be helpful to you, as students create gorgeous monochromatic Degas Dancers!

----> Be sure to DOWNLOAD the supporting document to get the templates for this project.

You can do this project in several ways. In the video I demonstrate how you can make your own monochromatic paper with students using acrylic paint and then use the templates I provide to create Degas dancers out of that paper.

However, you can also use the templates and copy them onto paper that is already in a value scale. The third option is to transfer the template shapes onto construction paper (in the colors of your choice) using a graphite transfer method. These options are explained in the video.

…and of course feel free to modify and adapt this lesson to make it work with your students.

The supplies are explained in detail in the video.

The steps are explained in detail in the video.
