Mixed media lady bugs.

First grade (and a couple of Kindergarten classes) used paint, paper, scissors, glue, crayon to create these mixed media ladybugs. We discussed what a highlight was.  Basically it is the opposite of a shadow.  The students worked really hard on these, they acted like they were having fun or something.

Recycled cardboard paintings.

Third grade used recycled cardboard that I saved from the dumpster to create these paintings.  We obviously had a discussion on the Earth and what Earth Day means as well as Arbor Day.  The plan is to have these be a cover for a bookmaking project I have planned for stay tuned....or not.

Game cubes.

Second grade learned about three dimensional shapes and took some clay and sculpted a sphere first and then flattened each side to create a cube.  Of course they were all into creating their cube into a dice when the paints came out.  I could barely get a couple of pics of them before they just "had" to take them home

Third grade poppies.

Third grade learned about Monet and his art of poppies.  We also learned about the importance of focal point, each student has to create a point of emphasis in their paintings.  These turned out awesome in my opinion!

Space Collage.

First grade learned the art element of  "Space" by creating a outer space collage.  The requirement is that they had to cut and paste at least three different objects into their "space".  One had to be a rocket complete with fire.  We also discussed warm, cool, and neutral colors.  The students definitely did not space out on this one.
