Observing and drawing the details of a red fox in it's natural environment. Using pencil, white oil pastel and blending construction paper crayons to create these fantastic foxes!
This Winter 2nd graders created beautiful winter wonderlands by combining a couple of different watercolor painting techniques and then collage. We reviewed warm and cool colors as well as overlapping in this lesson. Finally details were added with silver marker to give a boost of twinkle in these beautiful landscapes.
In this art lesson we captured little fingerprints and adorable expressions in these fingerprint reindeer by the 1st grade classes. We used our thumbs to make a head and body and then added details with sharpie. The children were to try to create a sense of movement in their reindeer. As a final touch we used cotton swabs to dot on glitter paint for snow and maybe a red nose for a Rudolph. This is something Mrs. Ray has done in the past with her 1st graders and I just love it! The 1st grader also loved making pictures using there fingerprints.
Kindergartners working hard on their cutting and gluing skills in these too cute chilly penguin collages. The children drew and cut out their own penguins shapes and glued them together. In this exercise we learned how to use white glue with out making a mess, just a dot not a lot! Kindergarteners also used marker to make a patterns on their scarfs. To create snow we used cotton swabs to dot on white paint in the background. I thought it was so funny how most of the kids kept calling the earmuffs, headphones.
