Materials: cardboard, hot glue, and paint! We will be collecting the rest of our materials! Paint your cardboard a base color. I chose a simple yellow, but you can do whatever you’d like here! Pay attention to your surroundings and anything that stands out! Collect found materials; sticks, leaves, rocks... Draw an outline of something you observed: it could be an animal, your house, a plant, anything! I noticed a red cardinal sitting in the trees above me. Here are some of the things I collected. Using your found materials, see where they fit best on your outline. You can manipulate the materials you found... Glue materials down, following your outline as a guide. I found these longer sticks to fit well for my tail... I wanted to add some definition, so I outlined using sticks! Adding finishing touches! My final creation- Thank you for watching!
