Snowdog Design – Week 2
It’s week two of St. Luke’s Primary School Art Club where students from years 4, 5 & 6 select their final Snowdog design to apply to their Paint Your Own Snowdog.
The Paint Your Own Snowdog figurines will be decorated with their Snowdog designs over the next 4 weeks. Follow the Paint Your Own Snowdog blog posts to view the Art Club’s Paint Your Own Snowdog progress!
Last week students took the Snowdog outline home to work up more Snowdog design ideas in their spare time. This week students reviewed all their ideas to select a final Snowdog design to paint onto their Paint Your Own Snowdog.
Reviewing their Snowdog designs students made their final decision based on the strength of the design, colour palette and the ease of application. Below is a selection of images showing their design ideas and work in progress.
The students used a practise Snowdog to test their paints and plan out how they will apply the paint. Next week students will use the 6 water based acrylic paints and brush that comes with the Paint Your Own Snowdog as well as shiny gloss acrylics, posca pens, pencils and pencil crayons and special silver and gold pens for added sparkle!
Next week St. Luke’s Art Club will move onto drawing their design onto the Snowdog canvas and begin painting the base colour! Hairdryers will be at the ready to speed up the drying process. We’re looking forward to seeing their designs come to life on the Snowdog canvas!
