Black and White Menagerie

Fifth graders chose animal photos and carefully observed forms and textures to create their pen and ink drawings.  This is a challenging material and working with splatters and “mistakes” is part of the learning process.  As students were encouraged to rework and add more their drawings became more and more intense and high contrast.  These animals took on their own personalities as more and more lines were added.
