You will need...
Get yourself ready, clear then cover your table space with newspaper, get an A3 or larger piece of paper and lay it portrait way.
In the top half of the paper, using your pencil, draw an egg or pear shaped oval. Have it big enough that it takes up most of the space but make sure you leave room at the top for the ossicones (horns). You might want to practice on whiteboards to build up confidence first.
Note: I have done my example in black marker so you can see it.
Go over every pencil line with a black marker, preferably with a nice thick tip. It's really important to have newspaper under your work for this part!
Ready to paint? Please warn your students that acrylic paint will not come off clothes once it has dried, kia tupato koutou! Paint each section carefully using nice bright colours.
Finished? Be sure to wash your brushes and always keep your work space tidy. Ask your teacher to come to your work space to check your finished work, do not walk around the classroom with wet painted paper.
While the paint is drying, bring out the colour wheel and explain what analogous colours are.
Use the chalk pastels as a tool to highlight Harold. If your background is blue like in these photos, then the analogous colour to go over the blue is aqua blue, dark blue or purple. Carefully go around your giraffe with the pastel pressing hard so it becomes bright. This is a very messy process so you will need to have paper towels to wipe your hands. Try not to blow the dust away, instead rub it in with your index finger carefully blending the chalk into the painted area. We also used the chalk to draw spots like on Harold for the empty spaces in the background.
