3rd grade Dancing Giraffes with Movement

3rd graders are studying movement and how cartoon artist and illustrators create the illusion of movement in their work in a variety of ways. For example, by creating movement lines, repeating a part over and over again (like a swinging tail), and by using a lot of diagonals. We read the book "Giraffes can't Dance" and looked at the ways that the artist made the animals look like they were dancing. We then painted our own dancing giraffes who are moving like crazy!
