Monster Paintings

My younger students (ages 5-8) created these monster paintings as part of a unit on puppeteer Jim Henson.  For inspiration we looked at Henson's drawings of various creatures (in particular his bird-like frackles) that were later used as inspiration for the Jim Henson's City Critters.

We started with a basic step by step guide to assist in the creation of the drawings for their monsters.  When painting the kids used 3 values of one colour as a way to give their monsters a bit of dimensionality, something which is particularly visible on the spikes of the fur.
