Penguin and Seal sketching activity for Summer Art Camp

To fit the Antarctica theme of the Summer Art Camp program at Highlands Elementary, I created another Penguin and Seal sketching sheet. Eight different classes of 5 to 7 year old students were provided with markers and colored pencils and were instructed to customize their activity sheets using their creative license. They could draw and color it into a natural scene or use their imagination and add any details and speech balloons to create a fantasy illustration.

Some happy students with their finished projects.

Some students chose the option of exercising their writing skills turning the sketching page into a comic book panel with some dialog between the penguin and the seal..
This student chose to do the entire drawing herself using the sketching sheet just as a reference starting point.
Fully colored and lettered.Once the initial project was complete, a few students chose to tackle it again using a different approach. This young artist went in a completely different direction and drew a couple of dueling dragons which are always welcomed in any of my sketching classes.
