Ron Burns Inspired Dogs

(This was to be a painting project, but this artist was set on pastels.
Glad I let you go your own way Avery. Love the shapes and color palette!)





This artist is full of energy and enthusiasm. It is really reflected in this piece
Nice work Michael!



Since I am a major dog lover and a big fan of Fauvist art, a Ron Burns inspired dog lesson seemed the perfect choice for my Cool Canine and Fantastic Feline group. I was so pleased to see such a variety of outcomes with this project. I did a loose direct line drawing lesson based on one of his paintings, but encouraged the kids to add their own details and personality to their work. Art by children 6-11.


I appreciate your comments and feedback!
