It's the Doodlebugs third day of camp and I understand that Aunty Reiko already has them coming out of their shells (those that need encouragement of course lol) with a dance session after the book Giraffes Can't Dance. I personally love this book... I read it to my own children so it wasn't hard to come up with an art lesson for this one.
Drawing the Giraffe
These were lots of fun to draw just using simple shapes and focusing on making the legs long and wobbly like they were in motion! They coloured them in using oil pastels and we set them aside.
Painting the Background
Next the Doodlebugs painted the background night sky by mixing a deep blue and purple colour right on the page. The left out a circle for the moon and painted the bottom of the page green for the grass.
Putting it all together
Then all the beautiful giraffes (cut out by our lovely Aunties Adesha and Loiuse) were stuck into place and voila a fabulous dancing giraffe!
Take a look at our stunning results!
