Welcome to our new weekend art challenge. We would love for you to study Giraffes. They are simply beautiful animals, majestic and powerful, yet so graceful, dainty and friendly too.
Students might like to create a realistic painting or drawing full body, full background or head study.
You might like to create a character design of a single giraffe or design a story around a family of Giraffes.
Students could also take the idea of a giraffe and be creative with the overall colour scheme. They could paint it with bright coloured background and different colours on the spots.
Alternatively you might like to create a piece of artwork illustrating a baby giraffes showing their vulnerable side, or perhaps mother and calf together and the love between them.
However you decide to depict this theme, enjoy it and we look forward to seeing your results posted on our Facebook page or to us direct via email!

Best of luck and happy drawing and painting!
