I know that I say it all the time…sending home the kids’ art is so hard, but these were exceptionally hard because I wanted to hang them all up side-by-side…forEVER! The vibrancy of chalk pastels on the black paper makes the colors pop, each child’s lion was easily distinguishable and so unique to each artist, and the abstract colors used make these feel light and joyful.
Well done, kiddos. Well done! (Now, can you all bring your lions back so I can hang them all up? In my house? #icandream)
Begin by drawing a large circle in the center of the paper for the lion’s head. Draw the eyes, nose, mouth, and then fill in the rest of the face.
Add the colorful mane.
