Kindergarten Winter Trees

Kindergarten explored oil pastels and drawing trees using the “Y” technique, and the growth is amazing! The tree on the left was their first attempt, the tree on the right was their next attempt! When they were done drawing we covered the paper with blue bleeding tissue paper and I gave the a spray with … Continue reading

1st grade Snowpeople

These first graders followed along with the teacher to draw the bodies of their snowpeople, and then were shown different examples of mouths they could draw. I love how fun these are!

4th grade Snow resist 

Fourth grade got another lesson in how to draw trees using the “Y” technique. Can you see the “Y’s”? Then they used white oil pastel to make the ground and the snow in the sky, and finally painted the entire paper with blue/purple watercolor. Beautiful!

5th grade Winter Prints

We brainstormed to think about words that came to mind when I told them “winter”. I showed them several Googled images of “winter images”, and they sketched out their ideas. The next day, they drew their sketches onto their styrofoam plates and then printed! Way to go!

3rd grade Polar Bears

These projects are so super cute! They were so excited to find out about what a resist meant!

Art Station Day!

Every once in a while, some of the classes will finish a project ahead of some of the others. When that happens, the completed classes get to have Art Stations! It’s one of their favorite activities. The room is just completely a buzz with creation! Take a look!

We watched this awesome video, then thanks to the awesome GT teacher Ms. Heitt, the kids … Continue reading

Getting to know Michaelangelo

Great sub plan is to have the students watch a video from the Getting to Know: series, and then they draw something they remember from the video. This group watched the video on Michaelangelo, and I saw wonderful drawings of Michaelangelo with his chisel, standing on a scaffold, the Sistine Chapel, David, and more. But … Continue reading

Kindergarten Painted Shape Mice

Introducing color mixing to 5 year olds is always a fun yet challenging process. Proper brush technique: Mr. Paintbrush is the super hero of the art room, he sweeps away Mr. Blob! Use him like a broom. Hold it like a pencil. Mr. Paintbrush doesn’t like his hair messed up. No Sally, we don’t paint … Continue reading
