The only thing better than learning how to drawing sweet and adorable dogs is teaching your students how to use their art to advocate for animals in need. In this extensive 67 page lesson, students will learn how to draw dogs and cats from their local animal shelter that they will make extra special by creating a 3-D flower crown to add on their head.
You will give your students to gift of knowing they are making a difference with their art when they are supporting an animal in search for their forever home.
