My daughter liked this project so much, she is working
on a series of Galler inspired dogs using all oil pastel
One artist who seems to be heavily "pinned" by art teachers on Pinterest, is Heather Galler. Her folk art style is bold, colorful and has strong design elements ....so it's easy to see why she's so popular. My Animal Art class looked at her her colorful stylized pooches and most decided to use her Greyhound for inspiration. They used Sharpie/glue or both on colored construction paper to create their line work. Chalk pastel was used to add bold areas of color. Artwork by K-4th graders.
