4th Grade Artwork: Surprise Ferocious Animals Slideshow
Project #2: Scholastic Art Magazine Due May 5
Project #1: Surprise Ferocious Animals
For this project you will need:
Step 2: Now get your supplies ready if you haven't already. First, fold your paper in half as the video shows and then fold back the top half on itself. Watch the beginning of the video again to see how this is done and/or ask an adult to help you...this is probably the trickiest part.
Step 3: With the paper folds closed, use a pencil to draw the outline of your animal. What kind of animal are you going to draw? In the example they did a fish, but I am hoping you will come up with your own idea!
Tip: it helps to have some lips/mouth on the animal while the paper is folded to give the teeth a spot to go once you open it up.
Step 4: Open up the folds and connect the parts of the animal from the top and bottom and add a bunch of ferocious teeth!
Step 5: Time to add color! In the video the artist went over the pencil with black marker. You can do the same to make your animal pop if you have a black marker or crayon but you don't have to do this. But you must color your animal in neatly and completely so that it looks very bright and fun :)
Step 6: Have your parent help you take two pictures of your artwork- one with it closed and the other with those ferocious teeth showing! You can be in the picture too if you like :) and finally have your parent email those pictures to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also email me at the same address with any questions you may have about the project. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here is the rubric I will be using to assess your work on this project. Look it over with a parent to see what areas you may be able to improve before you decide you are finished.
