Folk Art Bird Painting

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Folk Art Bird PaintingThis cute bird painting is an example of Folk Art, which is primarily made by untrained artists. In this lesson I encouraged students to paint with a very rough and sketchy style. Lesson 1: Give the students large pieces of brown wrapping paper, about 12" x 18". They are to paint a large bird body in the middle. When finished, the background is painted black.Lesson 2: Using oil pastels, the students are to add detail to the bird, such as legs, eyes, beak, legs etc.
