Animals play an important role in Egyptian culture. They also play an important role in ours. This week you will be creating a dog portrait (of your own dog or your favorite breed). We will "sell" or "ask for donations" for your piece and the proceeds will benefit Operation Paws for Homes, an amazing dog rescue group.

Listen to your favorite song. Using line, color, shape, and pattern, visually represent what you think the rhythm (principle of design) of the song is.
Think about using mostly warm or cool colors when representing your song. If it's upbeat, what colors and lines would you use? If it's a slow song, what colors and lines would you use? If it goes up and down, maybe you will use both warm and cool colors.

Background Information: Ancient cave paintings are some of the earliest forms of artwork. Art historians believe that cave paintings may have been a way of communicating with others. They often depict symbols, images, etc. (no words).
Directions: Imagine you are in the wilderness with no phone (which means no texting, no Twitter, no Instagram, or any means of communication for that matter). Establish your own creative way of "cave texting" your friends to communicate an event. (For example: Invite your friends to a birthday party, tell them about a sports practice, etc.) You may not use any words. Your artwork must be full page, full color. :) BE CREATIVE and have fun!
