William Wegman is great inspiration for fun projects for kids. He is a photographer famous for his compositions with his Weimaraner dogs.
Wegman is fascinated with humanizing his animals and has created hundreds of amazing videos and photographs. I like his book shown here as it shows the dogs in many everyday poses.
• Printed Dog Head template
• Drawing paper
• Colored pencils
1. Print Dog Head template and gave each student a strip that contains 4 different heads. They cut out and glue down their favorite on a 5.5″ x 8.5″ sheet of paper.
2. Students add 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.
