1. Read the story or watch the video (below)
2. Practice drawing giraffes by placing one giraffe at each table and asking students to
a) manipulate the giraffe into a dance pose
b) photograph it with the ipad
c) import the photo in the brushes app
d) draw over the photo
e) email the finished drawing to me
f) I print the drawings for them
3. Students turn the prints into paintings
I've seen this book inspire lots of art projects on Artsonia.com,
so I can't wait to give it a try with my students.
