Pets in Pastel - 7th Grade Art
Students find pictures of their breed of pet on the internet (or you could have them bring them from home, but I haven't had much luck with that). They might choose a favorite animal instead....in either case they need to save the file. Then they can fool around a little with Photoshop filters as I have shown above. (They enjoy using the program and ultimately they don't really need to, but it adds to the enjoyment of the project). Then they can work on a simple pencil outline followed by the final pastel or oil pastel. I let them choose.
