Last year a few homeschool Moms from church and I began an art class for our small group of children. We meet every other week with each of us taking a turn to teach. Since our group has various ages it is difficult at times to find projects to meet our needs. Lately we have been taking ideas from online that incorporate a little science and geography into our class along with teaching various art techniques. Our current project was learning about the Toucan, drawing a picture of one, coloring it with pastels and trying to blend the colors together. It took two classes to finish but they turned out great! Our next lesson will be on tigers and learning to use watercolors. That could be a bit more challenging.
Everyone's drawing is based on the same photo of a Toco Toucan.
