Students learned about an art movement called NeoPopRealism, this movement was created by Nadia Russ and includes things like zentangles. NeoPopRealism is all about doing structured designs directly in a non-removable medium.
This means that when creating this type of art that students can't erase! They must think about their drawing and design before they act and WHEN a mistake is made, they must fix it another way (incorporating it into the design, moving past it, etc). We did a step by step guided drawing to create hedgehogs, although this can be done with any animal or object. Once they created their own hedgehog using one color marker, the student then filled in each section with a different design. Even though the drawing was step by step, no two hedgehogs are the same!
