This was a lot of fun, watching kids make adorable little creatures based on color prints of real animal eyes. They were allowed to draw their own pet, or come up with a “wish” pet, as the 2nd grader did above.
1. Print out my collection of low-res animal eye photos. Print on photo paper to get the best results. Students cut out the pair that they liked, and glued them to an art journal page.
2. The animal body was drawn around the eyes, traced with a Sharpie marker and colored with crayon.
Thank you Neariah, for letting me share your Wish Pets. I can’t help but smile when I look at them.
