Holiday Workshop – Day 3: Design-A-Creature

Holiday Workshop – Day 3: Design-A-Creature

It was a crazy-crazy-wow-sjoewee day at In The Zone! Another paint-a-canvas day.

The theme was ‘design-your-own’creature’. We had to think of at least 5 creatures with very different looks, for example: an elephant, a crocodile, a ladybird, a polar bear and a monkey. The idea was to mix them all up and design a weird and wonderful looking animal.

 

Ismael took to this project like a duck to water. Unfortunately we had a couple of absentees so Ismael painted on his own. This did not deter him as he had two mentors guiding him through this project. We made him stretch his imagination until it almost popped. He couldn’t stop talking and coming up with lots of ideas!!! 🙂

We got him to write down his 5 animals and hide the piece of paper away and then draw his designer-animal. We then had to try and guess which animals he used. We almost got them all. He had a cheetah tail, eagle wings, a lion’s body and head, snake fangs and a panther’s eye. Wow! Now that’s some combination! We also got him to design his creature’s environment and to really think about where it would live, what it would eat etc?

 

He took the entire morning to plan, create and paint. He was so in-the-zone with this project it was a delight to watch.
