This month our art class theme is Cartoon People and Animals. My groups are learning how to use facial guidelines and simple ways to change the expression of a character. To create animals, we're learning to start with simple shapes and build from there. I discovered some Wonderful books by best selling author, Christopher Hart. I must say, I'm hooked! He has an amazing knack for breaking down any subject matter into a easy-to-follow manner.
