I can't take credit for any part of this wonderful Chinese Lion Dance lesson other than the fact that I had the good sense to "borrow" it from smART Class. Thank you Natalie! This was the perfect finale to my Art Across the Globe classes this summer.
After the children watched some wonderful lion dancers in action, they followed Natalie's fantastic draw along lesson. Background fireworks were created with oil pastels and line work traced over with black oil pastel before painting their lions with watercolor.
I had a wonderful time this summer with my 6 art class groups. Thanks to all the children who joined me for some creative time!
