scratch board with 6th Grade

Here is our scratch board project with the 6th grade.  We were working on Day of the Dead Skulls, but with the breaks in Nov we had a hard time getting them done.  Also for some reason this year the 6th graders struggled with working on scratch board. 

To the MOON with 2nd grade

Here was a fun project of drawing the students flying a rocket ship in space.  We went over how to draw a rocket and what it looks like in space. 

Elmer The Elephant 1st grade

For this project I read the book Elmer by David McKee.  I did a demo on how to draw the elephants and then we talked about patterns, and different colors we could add to make them colorful.   The students then drew out their own elephants and colored them being in the Elmer's Day Parade. 

Linoleum Cuts with Art Club

Through a donation of another art teacher we were able to do Linoleum cuts this year with the art club.  These turned out pretty good, the pictures are a little off color bc of the new camera taking these pictures, so sorry about the color.  They look great in person. 

perspective snowman 4th Grade

Here is a project we decided to do with the 4th grade class it was a forced perspective Snowman,  it was colored with crayons and white oil pastels

Illustration with 4th Grade

It seems that everyone loves the Goosebumps Books in 4th Grade so for an illustration project we worked on the Cover for our own Goosebump book!

5th Grade VanGogh Flowers

Finally this project is done!  We have spent most of this semester creating our VanGogh Flowers out of string.  The project was fun, we just used too large of cardboard.  But they look great when done!

Chuck Close 7th Grade

This is one of my favorite projects to do and probably the most difficult project that 7th Graders do in art.  We first started with a week of learning how to draw the face, then we talked about the artist Chuck Close and how to use a grid.  We then took the students picture and placed a grid on their paper, and their photograph.  The students then went square by square and drew their face in.  After that was done they then went in and colored the whole page.  This was done on 18x24 size paper so this project took most of the semester so far, but I think it was worth it.  Here are a few examples and I may be posting more. 

Veterans Day with 3rd Grade

With having the day off school this Friday, I thought it would be justified to do a picture for Veterans Day.
