|A beautiful tropical bird sitting in foliage was created from ink blown through a straw. Color was added with colored pencils. This image was created by Mary M. from my Period 6 8th grade Visual Art class.|
|See how the ink design was used to form the|
shape of this fire-breathing man?
|Several sheets of paper have been covered with ink blown through a straw. Students will begin to brainstorm ideas for what each of these ink splotches can be turned into....Perhaps an animal? A person? May be an object or a landscape?|
|Cute orange fox. I especially like the expression of the face, don't you?|
|Frightening wolf above and a wonderful medley of natural elements below.|
The students were challenged by this activity and it really forced them to consider the possibilities for making art. The resulting images were really great fun to see and I especially enjoyed seeing the variety of characters that emerged from these random blobs and splotches of blown ink. What do you think of this lesson?
|This lovely lady strolls about with a flower and a parasol.|
|Oh My! No explanation needed for this one, but the dinosaur looks more cute than ferocious to me!|
|Silly floppy ear rabbit resting in the grass. Thanks for viewing this lesson!|
