The kindergartens drew these adorable stacked pigs. There were quite a few steps and it was a lot of work to outline this project, but the kids did a great job! This projects was great for teaching shape, line, color, and contrast.
As I was thinking about what to do for Art to Remember this year I somehow ended up coming back to mountains…this project was so fun to teach because I have a deep love for our beautiful mountains. The students worked through a guided drawing with me for these landscapes, but were able to add in their own details as they chose to. We discussed color mixing with oil pastel using either analogous colors, or value. The students were also shown how to mix colors in their mountains to help make them stand out from each other, creating contrast through shading. I love how peaceful these feel.
I decided to take a break from fish for our Art to Remember this year and went with frogs instead. I am so glad I did, the kids did an amazing job following directions and I love how their frogs turned out! The kids were able to choose whatever color they wanted when they colored the frogs…I love how many different colors they came up with!
