Animal Friends Art Project

Artists paint/color/collage their choice of animal, then cut out and paste onto a 5 x 7" canvas panel. These pieces can be easily hung on the wall with the addition of twine or ribbon, and are adorable framed as a series in a child's room!

Materials needed: Project sheet, 5 x 7" canvas board, canvas, or wood panel; acrylic paint, crayons, colored pencils, scissors. Optional: collage papers, thread. 

Simplify: adults help younger artists cut out the colored parts and arrange on the canvas // Elevate: include collage papers as "clothing" for the animals, and thread for the bunting. Draw additional elements for each animal, such as a hat, bowtie, present, birthday cake, flower, etc.; or switch up the words on the bunting to the artist's name, or other words of your choice.
