Chinese New Year Dragon Art

In 2nd grade classes we have been studying asian culture & in particular Chinese New Year.Students love the bright cultural traditions & especially the dragons. We glued yarn in a shape for the body & then drew a pattern in oil pastels.  Here are some of their masterpieces.

Van Gogh Chairs
