Our second graders made these adorable turtles. I love how the patterns turned out and the great colors the students used. We drew the turtle together, but the students had to had their own patterns. We also drew some flowers together, but they were allowed to add in their own background items as well.
Our kindergartners created these adorable fish bowls. We began with a guided drawing lesson for the fish, but the students were allowed to do what they wanted for the fins. They outlined and painted them with watercolor. Next they chose a patterned paper and glued a plain color to the bottom. They cut out their fish bowls and glued them down to the paper. They did an amazing job with all the steps – cutting and gluing can be hard for our little ones!
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)
