mythological creatures

Mythological creatures.

Ages 8 and 9.

The children made an imaginary animal, pieced together from other animals. They discussed and observed Hydra, Griffin and Pegasus.
They used time to practice their ideas, using silhouettes of African animals as support.
They used sticks and Indian ink to draw their creatures. The backgrounds are rubbings in wax crayon with dye over top.


  1. These are wonderful! I love the black line drawings against the textured backgrounds.

  2. I'm so glad I found your page Gretchen, this is another wonderful idea! I love the textures in the backgrounds.

  3. Thank you both. This was an enjoyable and successful lesson to take.

  4. Wow, these are great. You must be a very fun teacher.

  5. I've been searching for some inspiration for Art and can stop here - I've used up my art idea folder now from uni :) Thank you - have added your page to my bookmarks.
