William Wegman Trading Cards

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
William Wegman Trading CardsWilliam Wegman is a contemporary artist that has illustrated many children’s books and been a part of many videos on "Sesame Street".1. I started my lesson by talking about how Mr. Wegman makes his dogs look human in his artwork. Distribute color prints of different dog heads that are about 3/4" square. I found some online and printed them with my color printer, but you could scan magazines photos, scale them down and print them out.
2. Instruct the students to cut out a dog head and an additional magazine item like a body or background. Both items should be glued down on a 2.5" x 3.5" card and colored with pencil crayons.

3. A second 3.5" x 2.5" size card should be filled out with their name, and the two can slide back-to-back into a trading card sleeve. You can buy these sleeves for 1¢ at most trading card venues.
