“My Pet” Art Journal Page

This was a lot of fun today, watching kids make adorable little creatures based on color prints of real animal eyes. They were allowed to draw their own pet, or come up with a “wish” pet, as the 2nd grader did above.
1. I collected a bunch of low-res animal eye photos that I have uploaded HERE. Print as needed on photo paper to get the best results. Students cut out the pair that they like, and glue to an art journal page.
2. The animal body is drawn around the eyes, traced with a Sharpie marker and colored in with crayon.
Optional: If you use the Strathmore Art Journal Kit books, you could cut out little bows or collars from the printed paper inside and add them to the drawing as well. 
Thank you Neariah, for letting me share your Wish Pets. I can’t help but smile when I look at them!
Note: My sample page of eyes now has a permanent home (not on Scribd).
