Rescue Dogs Rock!


Here is the finished poster created for the SPCA of Northern Nevada (where my sister-in-law is Chair of the Board). Artwork comes from 3 of my Animal Art Fun Camps this summer, artists ages 4-11. We used several of the shelters' adoptable dogs as our models. The children were encouraged to create expressive portraits using Fauvist colors. This was such a fun project to put together! I think it's about time for a Rescue Cats Rock! poster. :D

  7. Thanks so much everyone! The kids were very receptive to the idea. The poster is a gift to kick off the shelter's newly (June) opened facility. Of course it would be wonderful if they wanted to use the poster or children's art in future promotions or fundraising.
