The students outlined the elephants with a brown or black washable marker. Then we used water to paint over the elephant. This creates nice value! Once the elephants were "smeared" then we painted backgrounds with tempera cakes (my new favorite paint because it's so easy to use!)
Finally, the best part.....we added fabric to the elephant for a shawl and headpiece to tie in a cultural reference to India and their use of elephants. Sequins were also a nice touch for 'jewels'.
