George Rodrigue Blue Dog Paintings

We started to learn about George Rodrigue's paintings: Cajun people, landscapes, and Blue Dog Series in November.

2nd Nine Weeks: (2013) One painting: Students painted blue dog from a copy and then added their own background of their choice;

3rd Nine Weeks: (2014) Second painting: Students chose a different color to paint blue dog and then painted objects related to that theme. Students provided a rationale for that color. The students had a great time and did really well!
