We looked at German Expressionist, Franz Marc, for inspiration. After seeing images of Marc's soulful animal paintings, we made our own leaping animals.  Specifically, we looked at Yellow Cow, The Large Blue Horses, and Three Cats. Students did a directed draw with ovals to break down the body parts of the animals.  Then, each student was able to customize the face and feet to make an animal of their choosing.
