Animal Cardboard Portraits

Create paintings that move from 2D to 3D

Kids will create paintings that move from 2D to 3D using recycled cardboard and paint. Kids will pick an animal’s head they wish to draw. We’ll practice drawing it and then plan the cardboard painting by breaking the drawing into shapes and layers. Then we’ll design, cut and paint their piece
