Art Project Tutorial:
Print up this whale template on cardstock and cut out.
Stack your colored paper together and cut out in the shape of your animal. We are using the shape of a whale.
Keeping all of your paper stacked together, slowly cut your shape into different pieces.
You can cut your shapes any way you like. If your working with younger children, you can do this beforehand and just have the pieces ready for them.
Once you have your animal cut into the different pieces, you want to keep them stacked together just a bit so you can easily put your puzzle back together.
Using your animal template draw the same shape onto a piece of white paper
Slowly start adding your pieces on top of colors.
When ready, fill your animal with glue and put your pieces on alternating the colors.
You now have a beautiful representation of Tlingit art! These look great with black construction paper frames!
