3rd graders like 4th and 5th graders have an art portfolio. We wont bring any of the lessons we make home until the last day of Art. Students will be eager to show you their work so that just makes our last day more special. On this day take the time to look through your artwork and show your family what you're most proud of and what you may have struggled with.
After we created our portfolios, 3rd grade jumped right into our first drawing assignment using line and shape. Students were introduced to the artwork of Lousiana artist George Rodrigue. Rodrique's work is based off a Cajun myth about a werewolf that prowled Louisana, called the Loup-Garou. George was inspired to use the story and the likeness of his pet dog Tiffany to create what we know today as the Blue Dog.
