After learning about the artist and painting, students learned which shapes and colors can be used to draw flamingos.

Here is one of the first completed comics. I thought it was very clever how the artist used names from common texting messages like BRB, LOL and TTYL. There are also very clever puns related to how each character is a nose, mouth, or eye (who are part of the Senses Bureau!). Click on the comic to see a larger view.
We use darning needles because they're a little bit easier for kids to use. Some students have chosen to take theirs home to do a little sewing at home. It's also okay to get a little help from home, if they like.
Some kids are finished and starting to stuff it with cotton batting. We use the paint brush to make sure the batting gets into the legs and arms of the figure.
