We watched lots of videos of George Rodrigue and the French Quarter in New Orleans where he lives and has his studio. His artwork records the folklore and history of the Cajuns in New Orleans! His famous Blue dog is a popular and fun symbol of New Orleans and inspired by a weird, wild, werewolf dog from a story he heard as a child! SO, to go along with Rodrigue's style of painting what YOU LiKe, we painted blue dog INSPIRED animals.
Artolazzi: Warm/Cool Suns: 'In Art class, 4th graders studied different types of lines while creating these sun drawings. Students also had to show an understanding of warm and cool colors while they were coloring their designs with markers'. *Thank you to my friend over at "what's happening in the art room" blog for this idea!*
