Product Description
Of all of the animals in Africa, the elephant is a favorite, if not the favorite with my students. So this project is perfect for all of the kids who love elephants, with an option to draw a lion or lioness as well.

We start by learning about Henri Rousseau and his paintings. The kids create a background and learn to draw an elephant or a lion. The handouts on how to draw an elephant and lion are key to helping the kids draw an animal they like. We use a mix of media, from chalk pastels to liquid tempera to oil pastels. The children are so engaged working on these paintings, and I love how the multiple layers create such a rich look.

Time Required: 90 minutes + 10 minutes the next class.
