I LOVE Romero Britto! His art is so full of color energy, it wakes me up just to look at it! Just like a cup of coffee! My students loved Britto too, they loved making these cats and dogs. Everyone was able to choose cat OR dog, since some people are cat people and others dog people. The first day we looked at several of his works of art and discussed his use of color and pattern, (Romero Britto Prezi) and then I directed a drawing lesson with 4 variations of ears, and sitting positions.
They did a great job!
Second week we painted in the whole cat/dog. Third week we outlined with black tempera and added dot and stripe patterns with the colors. They turned out great! Each has it's own personality!!!
