These adorable ducks were created by our first graders. We drew them together, then the students outlined them and colored their ducks and flowers with sharpies. Some chose to do some oil pastel stars before painting their backgrounds.
Our fifth graders created these awesome city skylines. I walked them through drawing the skyline, but they had the option of creating their own buildings as well. I then showed them some buildings with some details and they had to fill the buildings in with their own detail. They colored in the mountains using patterns and painted the sky. I love these!
We will be participating in Art to Remember once again to raise funds for the art program at Franklin. The funds we raise all come back in the form of art supplies that each and every student gets to use. For more info about Art to Remember visit their website. https://arttoremember.com/
I’m so excited about our Art to Remember projects this year. Since we work on these for the first several weeks of school and then I have to send them off to Art to Remember I thought I’d share our progress so far. (K – fish, 1 – duck, 2 – owl, 3 – lighthouse, 4 – toucan, 5 – city/Denver skyline)
The first graders drew these awesome cats with me through a guided drawing lesson. They were able to choose different shapes and lines and they finished them off with their own color choices. We painted this entire project with watercolor and the students were encouraged to practice patience for the neatest result…patience can be hard for first graders! They did a great job.
