Annual Teacher Experience – Canvas Painting 2019

Annual Teacher Experience – Canvas Painting 2019

Each year I have donated a Canvas Painting Experience for our fundraising auction.  I have a small group of kids (8 in each section this year) join me after school to learn how to use acrylics on canvas. I LOVE painting with acrylics, so this is always a fun event for me.  This year’s artwork turned out beautiful!

A Cup of Tea?

A Cup of Tea?

The third graders created these fun tea mugs. We drew the mugs together but they were allowed to do whatever kind of pattern or design they wanted in the mug and the background. We added tea bags with a piece of paper, using string to make it 3-d coming out of the mug. For the steam we used pulled apart cotton balls. They turned out so great!

The third graders created these Andy Warhol inspired Pop Art flowers using gelli plate and fake flowers to create a positive and negative print on colorful paper. They really enjoyed using the gelli plate to create these prints.  They also learned about Andy Warhol and Pop Art when viewing this presentation. 

Art to Remember 2018

Art to Remember 2018

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)
