Can we draw 1000 monsters?

Setting out to draw 1000 monsters we hoped to inspire students to brainstorm new possibilities for art-making, value/honor mistakes and create a larger collaborative work as a group.

~Pasteur 4th Grade Teacher Arturo Barrera and Teaching Artist Chuck Jones

We had just a single in-person class together before moving to virtual learning.

Teaching Artist Chuck Jones created a series of instructional videos to coach students in their home learning environments on a few different approaches for getting started drawing their monsters. He used exercises developed by famed cartoonist, author and educator Lynda Barry.
