E-Time Directed Drawings!

The kids have shown some interest in learning how to draw. For Etime, we explored drawing together. We watched a video and completed a directed drawing of a cat altogether. Afterwards, I chose 3 of my artist experts and we broke out into groups- dinosaurs, ponies and a peacock group. The kids chose what animal they wanted to learn and went to that group. Our experts did a wonderful job leading their students to create some beautiful pictures! At the end of the day, we got to paint our unique cat drawings :)

Have a great weekend!!!!!!
