This project uses the same drawing technique that I posted about here, but it's drawn in a large format (about 12" x 18") and painted with tempera paint.
I let the students finish the feathers in whatever manner they wished –with realistic or whimsical patterns. My goal was to have them practice their radial drawing with the feather lines extending out from the body. I compared it to the lines that radiate from the sun, which most students seemed to grasp, even the 1st graders.
