|Here's lookin' at YOU! Check out the projects below for some|
first grade ARTSY inspiration!
|A close-up of one of the "Winter Windows"--|
this light yellow crayon was easier to see than a white crayon on white paper.
|We talked about using shapes to make our cats and birds.|
We used real feathers and oil pastels for fun details.
|If a student wasn't in class the first week, they could make just the bird on week two.|
This student was fascinated by the hole punches he found on the supply cart.
|I love this cat's expression!|
|The finished display I copied from Fine Lines Blog--|
it was perfect, so I just had to do it!
|Here's the write-up that I displayed near the bulletin board-|
it really helps everyone to see all of the details of this project
(as well as the National Common Core Standards in Art)
Week 6: Line Study With Pastels (1 day)
|Beautiful shooting star!|
|Some students chose to have a limited color palette, but they still turned out beautifully.|
|A flying airplane.|
|And this is a football flying back and forth between players--LOVE it!|
We also had flying pigs, a giraffe or two, cars, superheros, a UFO, a couple of rockets,
LOTS of footballs, a unicorn, some cats and much more!
|A close-up of the individual 6" squares all glued together|
onto the larger roll of paper using Elmer's glue (a dot in each corner).
|The finished mural. Beautiful!!|
Backstory for this post:
So, it's been a busy Spring for me since I finished student teacherin' in December--I subbed a bit in preschool, kindergarten, elementary and high school and then landed a wonderful 6 1/2 weeks long-term sub gig at an elementary school nearby teaching art to grades K-5. What a blast I had--the students and staff at Fairgrounds rock and I was sad to go (it's hard to stop doing something you love when your next big thing isn't settled upon yet). Since then, I haven't blogged much because I've been daily subbing and working on my dang art teacher portfolio (more on that in a future post or ten). Check the sidebar (over on the right side of the blog) for other posts in this series (k-5 at Fairgrounds Elementary School). ENJOY!!
