My students drew along with me for the basic shapes of the giraffe and we focused on hot and cool colors when we painted. Using watercolors, 1st graders painted the giraffe in yellows, oranges, and reds. They used the cool colors of blue, green and violet on a light blue piece of construction paper and painted a simple design for the background. We used the Alpha Biggie Tempera cakes to paint the background because the paint is more intense on the colored paper. We cut out the giraffes and glued them to the background. We have been working really hard at drawing and painting all kinds of animals! I love the expressions on these!
