Blue Dog Creations
Fifth grade art students learned about the artist George Rodrigue, a Cajun artist who is most well known for his various Blue Dog paintings. They learned about the inspiration behind Rodrigue’s work as well as how his own history played a part in the creation of the iconic Blue Dog. Students were introduced to contour line drawing as well as how to draw figures which are proportional. Each student was required to produce a proportional contour line sketch of the Blue Dog prior to creating their final piece. When they were ready, each student created his or her own Blue Dog using whichever colors and adornments had personal significance to the artist. Each of these awesome Blue Dogs are unique!
