Dog Days of Spring


Since it  was raining cats and dogs last night, I thought this would be a perfect match! My second grade students were introduced to the wonderful children’s book, Art Dog by Thacher Hurd.  The story revolves around the mystery of the missing Mona Woofa, aka Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo Dog Vinci.   Art Dog solves the mystery and is able to restore the Mona Woofa to the Dogopolis Museum of Art.  The story ends with Art Dog “painting the town” thus creating his masterpiece, City Rhapsody.  I first had the students paint a swirling sky with watercolors, and than they added gold and silver paint markers to add a little sparkle.  The next class was spent using construction paper to create a cityscape.
