The beautiful photo we received in our curriculum kit inspired the little guy to take an entirely different approach to the activity and we ended up creating this awesome Dinosaur Resist Process Art

We used the inspiration photo as a starting point and the little guy drew his own prehistoric scene and of course added a dinosaur. After that, we used watercolors to create the background. The little guy painted an amazing sky with lots of different shades of blue and gray.

I love that the little guy put his own spin on it. We started with an activity from the Teacher Guide and by the time it was all said and done he had made a completely unique piece art.
