An artistic twist to an animal painting adventure by D. Passmore
This book was written to help young students relax and enjoy painting. It introduces a few examples of different styles of painting. Then the story leads the reader towards an answer to the title question. What if a pig could paint? What would that look like?
The kids in my classroom loved it and laughed at the pictures. Specially the Pig-o-Lisa. Some kids recognized the Stary-dog-nights and some of the classic paintings from history. The book has lots of questions, which lead the kids to think of answers as the book progresses.
After that, we did some painting projects with the theme ‘What would cats, dogs, and pigs paint like? It got the kids thinking. Some kids jump to the task quickly. Others needed to work through the questions. How would the animals hold the brushes? Would they use their paws, tails, or whole body to paint? It was a good way to pose comprehension and inferred questions. Then follow it through with the actual painting.
