Giving the monsters an environment.
We are doing some monsterly artwork at our house. The boys made texture monsters by using the soles of their shoes. Wes made a print of his sole with paint. Austin made a print using a colored pencil. Then we gathered all our monster story books for some inspiration on creating their own monsters. This project definitely has us thinking about the story WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. We are so excited that the story is being made into a movie. The trailer to the movie looks amazing!!
Once the boys created their monsters, the next task was to draw an environment for the monsters to live in. Austin quickly sketched out a street scene for the monsters to reside on. This post will have to be a two part deal. After the boys complete painting the scenery we will have a second post to show the finished project. You really should check out the trailer!! :)See the trailer here! Check back soon for the finished artwork!! :)
