5 year old giraffes
This work was inspired by the author and illustrator, Eric Carl. A page was covered with a giraffe pattern, after observing giraffe photos. On the reverse side of the page, a giraffe mother and baby are drawn, then cut out. On a second piece of paper, a light coloured crayon covers the page, then green acrylic paint is applied to the whole page. Once this is dry, the children used sticks to scratch grass, tree and leaf patterns into the paint. The giraffes are stuck to the background.
