Bedroom Designs

I introduced 4th graders to some perspective drawing techniques to create their own bedroom design... We had some very creative results!

Snowy day

Second grade has been reading the snowy day & they have created these beautiful mixed media collages based on the story. This is always a very successful lesson.
Students color a chalk background, then use dabbing techniques with a sponge & white paint (this gives a similar effect to the stories illustrations).
The next class is spent adding an art tissue collage of a snowy day scene.

Caves of Lascaux

1st grade has been learning art history, and were just introduced to the cave paintings of Lascaux France. I have collected the brown packing paper that often comes with school orders & we pushed the art room tables together to make large "cave drawings".
