One lesson I do with my students involves them drawing dragons on two =
seperate pieces of paper. They color these with crayon and then water =
color the background, one with warm colors, the other with cool. We cut =
these drawings into 1" strips. Fan fold a piece of black paper, and glue =
alternating strips on the folds, but be sure to place them in the =
correct order. Gather the fan at the bottom - I usually use gold cord. =
When hung you will see one dragon drawing from one angle, and when you =
stand on the other side you will see the other drawing. Very dramatic!
