#petpARTners portraits, December 2018

All classes have been working on their pet portraits that feature the dogs and cats of FurKids animal shelter, in hopes that sharing the art online and around the community will raise awareness and get more pets adopted. Not only are we enjoying this community service project, but we are growing our drawing and observation skills as well.

Fifth graders took inspiration from the work of Maira Kalman, who includes a little of the human caregiver in her portraits. The pet is always the feature!






 Grades k-4 worked on traditional style portraits as seen in this next group. We hope that sharing our work will entice viewers to go adopt a pet from FurKids or your own community shelter.
