These owls were made using letters of the alphabet....can you take a guess as to what letters we used? The tree branch is a letter Y, the owl's body is a letter U, the wings are D's and the orange background for the eyes is a letter B. Too fun!
To begin our assignment, students rubbed textures onto a piece of paper and then selected either the warm or cool colors to make a watercolor resist.
On day two, we started building the tree branch and owl. We made the bodies and wings and left the rest for next time.......We drew on top of old encyclopedia pages using a sharpie. I love the multi-media look!!
During the third day, we added the eyes and small details - ears, beak and feet and voilà.....our beautiful owls were complete!
