Guinea Pigs


Outcomes: Art - drawing, sketching, using colour techniques, proportion


Your tasks:  1) Study a photo or picture of a guinea pig and draw it. If possible study a real guinea pig. Maybe someone could bring their pet guinea pig to class or you could see one at a local pet shop. Draw the guinea pig on a separate piece of paper for inclusion with your English essay or draw it on the paper you write your essay on. See the student example.

2) Use recycled materials to design and make a guinea pig. You can use white, black or brown crepe paper, toilet rolls for the body etc. Be creative! Once finished, try to arrange the guinea pigs in your classroom in a box.
