04.02.21 Dogs 犬狗尾 with famous paintings in history
Updated: Feb 6, 2021
Today we want to make a little girl happy to paint dogs as she loves husky dogs!
We watched a video about huskys first, then we went through some famous paintings in history to pay attention to different ways to involve our best friend in our paintings.
To name a few - the mini dog with Freda Kahlo, the sad longly dog when Goya painted on his wall while living alone at 70, the posh fluffy dog against smooth face girl by Sargent, the colourful dog by Gaugain and more.
We attempted to do a study of the most famous of them all - Balla's funny walking dog!
We tried to learn the Chinese characters 犬狗尾 and see how they look similar to the painting!
Then we tried to do a sketch of a husky from a picture, tried to pay attention to shape of the body and the direction of legs. We let the kids decide what is around the husky and any stories that may be happening.
Finally we sang the song of Bingo while finish the paintings.
