Positive & Negative Space Collage

This is an oldie but goodie! Students learn about Positive and Negative Space by cutting a symmetrical face out and then cutting the face in half then placing the pieces like a puzzle to create a whole face.




This is also a great way to teach about contrasting colors!

Art Club Masks

Art Club has been working on these warm and cool colored masks. We used mask forms and art tissue strips with glue and water. After they dried, students added embellishments. We had some very dramatic results...

Day of the dead Qtip skeletons

Every year our school does arts in the school night in April. Each grade level does a different continent. 4th graders do south america. Since it is the time for the traditional holiday of Dia de Los muertos (day of the dead) which is celebrated November 1st & 2nd. Students have made Qtip skeletons and decorated them with colorful construction paper...lots of fun, but Qtip pieces are everywhere!
