Patriotic Eagles Grade 4

This lesson was a huge success in my art classes.  The structure of drawing from a photograph combined with the freedom in designing the background appealed to all students.

Fourth graders drew an eagle in profile by working from a photograph.  They added a patriotic background that included stars and stripes, and red, white and blue.  Students worked with oil pastels on black paper.

Tracy Albert, from May Whitney School in Lake Zurich, developed this lesson.
