The Stuffy is ALIVE

This seasons Drawing Series Little Artists are introduced to simple tricks and techniques to make their favorite stuffed animal from home come to life through graphite, watercolor pencils, oil pastels and ink drawing on various surfaces.

Little Artists spent a few days learning about shadows....  We looked at examples illustrations by Mark Buehner from the story Snowmen at Night written by Caralyn Buehner.

  

  

Little Artists learned about line and how shape of an object can change from different perspectives.  And how adding various textures can give a drawing life.  We also tried other mediums for fun, exploring shapes...

   

Background, foreground, horizon line....overlap....blending...

  

  

End of day 7...

Day 8

    

Taking the opposite approach with the cartoon drawing we exaggerated the stuffed animals features and facial expressions.  Making up a story for our character through a storyboard of squares.  We gave the stuffed animals human-traits such as clothes and the ability to talk or think with speech bubbles and thought bubbles.

See You At The Next Studio!
