Folk Art Bird

One of the main features of Folk Art is that it is made by untrained artists. In this lesson I encouraged students to paint and draw with a very rough and sketchy style. This time, neatness doesn't count!
Week 1: Give the students large pieces of butcher paper, about 12" x 18". They are to paint a one-color large bird in the middle, in profile. The background gets painted black, deliberately leaving a bit of paper edge around the bird and the paper edge.
Week 2: With oil pastels, the students are to add detail to the bird, such as legs, eyes, beak, etc. The background is to be filled with lots of line patterns. Finally the painting gets glued to a larger paper, and border patterns are drawn on that too.
