After our Dubuffet explanation, students were given a rubber glove and a paint tray (that looked like a Pollock design.) We used "furry" colors. They hand printed away....with many smiles and a good batch of laughs!
The next session, we drew the design-outline- of a reindeer on the back. We included a fluffy mane on the neck and back legs that have a realistic shape. Then, we cut.
We used the next class to add Dubuffet eyes, hooves, tail, mane, etc. with paint.
During the last class, we traced our hands for 1/2 the antlers and used a pattern for the other side.
I included an explaination to the parents on the back side- since many will not understand the relationship they had to Dubuffet! Please see this link for that information in PDF form!
