I chose the subject matter of tigers because they are bold and have dynamic black, orange and white patterns. We began by folding a piece of 9" x 12" paper in half and while looking at photos of tigers heads, we drew half of it on one half of the paper.
Once our drawings were done, the fun began. Starting with orange paint, students painted a small portion of the painting on one side of the paper, then folded it in half and rubbed the paper together to mirror the image on the other side of the paper. Students continued doing this for at least three classes using orange first and eventually, black and white. They finished it off with pink and yellow.
This is a process of art that takes patience because it takes a while but it is really fun watching the art come to live.
