A Swoop of Cranes

This week I’m featuring some of my kindergarten students drawing cranes from an image found at http://twistynoodle.com. At first the kids thought that the picture looked hard to draw; but we broke it down into easy shapes……and our shapes turned into cranes! We used transfer paper to copy our drawings onto brown cardstock and painted them with acrylics. We “loaded” the brush with white paint, making our strokes look fluffy. A decorated sheet of black cardstock became the frame. What a fine flock of feathered friends!
