Kindergarten - Dancing Giraffes

One of my favorite Kindergarten projects, Dancing Giraffes is a challenging cap to all of the learning about lines we've done so far.  First, we read the awesome book Giraffes Can't Dance, and paid close attention to the types of lines the artist used to make the animals look like they're dancing.  Then we painted the background so that it before drawing a giraffe with curvy, wavy, and diagonal lines in the arms, legs, and tail.  Then we cut the giraffes out and glued them onto the background.  A lot of different parts and art techniques go into this one, and the kindergartners did a spectacular job.  Take a look at just a few of the great examples!

Special thanks to the awesome for the inspiration.
