Fun with William Wegman

William WegmanWilliam Wegman is a photographer famous for his compositions with his Weimaraner dogs. His fascination with humanizing his animals has created hundreds of amazing videos and photographs. I like his book shown here as it shows the dogs in many everyday poses.
1. I created a composite of Weimaraner head photos that you can print HERE. I printed them in color and gave each student a strip that contained 4 different heads. They cut out and glued down their favorite on a 5.5″ x 8.5″ sheet of paper.
2. They then added a human body of their choice. Some older students were challenged to include an action pose.
3. When complete, the drawings were traced with a thin black marker and filled in with colored pencils.
