Some of the class had seen our art club work on the walls and had mentioned how they'd like to give the drawing a go, so we gave it a shot a couple of days ago when we had a gap after lunch. We didn't do the complicated pointillism and background that we did in the art club project. Instead, we did the checkerboard background following the same instructions as the one used in this activity.
We followed the same instructions as here for the bulldog and then attempted to use three harmonious colours for the background. Some of the class got their colours slightly muddled but the results were still impressive considering the short amount of time and that the majority are not in art club.
