I have been an admirer of Sue Coccia for many years. Her art is very colorful and fun.
Her work can be seen here: http://www.earthartinternational.com/
For this lesson, students learned about Sue Coccia and looked at examples of her artwork.
Students were instructed to create an outline of an animal of their choice. They filled the interior with patterns and/or other animal figures in marker then painted them with watercolor.
