First students will practice with drawing the shapes and details of the Alpaca's face.
When they are comfortable, we will move to the final paper.

Face can be drawn in upper half of paper to show off the long neck.

Start lightly with a pencil (always)
Then when it looks how you like it, go over with marker or make lines darker.

Students will color alpaca using oil pastels or crayons. They need to use at least three colors blended on the entire alpaca. 

I will show them three ideas from these sources...

Watching over the Flock

Alpaca Love

The edges need to be colored the hardest (for later resist purposes).
Students will be encouraged to color Alpaca in unnatural colors.

Mix, blend, mix, blend...
Texture, scribble, texture, scribble...

The background will be painted in colors or patterns that will help EPHASIZE the alpaca face.
Horizontal design in contrast to the vertical body or colors opposing the color wheel.

  1. We are taking a field trip to a working alpaca ranch. This will be a fun art project when we get back!
