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...
I'm So Happy You Came 
by Jeff Seaberg
Watching over the Flock 
by Pat Saunders White
Alpaca Love
by Eli Halpin
The edges need to be colored the hardest (for later resist purposes).
Students will be encouraged to color Alpaca in unnatural colors.
