The project was done with PYR/Grade 1. We traced elephants first and then outlined in thick permanent marker. Then we used sponges and rollers with black and white paint to make the elephant skin-- lots of great discussions on texture. After they were cut out, they had a blast decorating. We used up a lot of old fabric that had been lying around the art room.
Would have been a great Diwali project-- there's always next year!
