Too many laughs today while making them :)
Here was our inspiration:
Picasso's Le Coq
After finger painting our background in shades of brown to break up the whiteness, the feathers started flying!! We laid the canvases outside to dry, which didn't take long in the Oklahoma summer sun!
The kids had drawn up a couple initial crazy chicken sketches and chose their favorite to paint. Using a fine tip brush and watered down black paint they set to work once their canvas was dry.
As they worked on them, some of the feathered friends even got nicknames!
Meet Jungle Ninja Chicken!
Rainbow Rooster from Outer Space!
The kids loved seeing each others roosters get crazier and crazier looking with each brush stroke! Fun, fun day!!
