SW learn about the history of Mexican Alebrijes, then use collage to brainstorm their own.
SW draw the basic shapes of their preferred collaged creature.
SW learn about analogous, complementary warm and cool color patterns, then experiment on their own with different ways of using color.
SW create patterns on their Alebrije using oil pastel & watercolor resist.
