These folk art roosters were inspired by this lesson from Mrs. Knight's Smartest Artists. Thank you Hope! The children chose between a front view or profile portrait and followed a simple line drawing lesson. The pieces were painted with acrylics. Once dry, they used chalk pastels to add some extra texture. On a separate sheet of colored construction paper, squares of patterned were glued to create a border for our cut rooster portraits. These were created by K-2nd graders.
