Here is a fun cow project I tried with my art class.  I was not sure if they would understand the concept of the body and horizon line, etc..but they did! And I love love how they turned out. The kids are proud of them and enjoyed the process. They started out tracing the body (a rectangular stencil) with black oil pastel adding the legs, tail, and head. The next class, we drew the horizon line, a "fence", grass, clouds, and sky... anything they wanted! These took two 40 min. sessions  (some did not want to paint the whole thing and others wanted to cover the entire page...amazing how different each one is!)
