These colorful fox wall hangings are supersized! We start with an 18” x 24” piece of corrugated cardboard recycled from large boxes. This project can also be done as a painting on 18” x 24” paper. Drawing big is great for young children, and it gives them a lot of area to paint with big brushes.
After a directed line drawing for the fox, the children are totally engaged in the painting process. This is where the kids really make their foxes their own. Check out their amazing art in the student gallery!
Time required: 60 minutes + 10 minutes the next class.
