There birds were created by our fourth graders and I think they are amazing! The bird was modeled after a toucan, but the students were allowed to color them however they wanted. I did require the students to use at least two colors and blend them with oil pastel.
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!
Our third graders created these beautiful seascapes. We drew parts of this project together, but the students were allowed to add their own details, or change the sailboat to a different type of boat if they wanted. We colored with sharpies and used watercolor and oil pastel in the background.
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)
Every student will complete a clay project this year. It’s a bit of a challenge to store 600+ projects, but somehow it gets done and the kids just love seeing their project once it goes through the glaze firing! So do I!
We are all ready for spring and blooming flowers so we decided to do a beautiful flower pot project in Kindergarten. The students were guided through a lesson on how to draw the pots and flowers and added their own patterns and color. I love how these turned out!
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.
