I first learned of Sandra Silberzweig at a professional development day with my school system’s art teachers. And of course, as new things tend to do, after learning about her I started seeing her stuff everywhere.
I love her art and all the colors and patterns in it. The kids love it too and other than how colorful it is, they love the funky, stylized aspect of her faces.
One of my favorites is the cat eating a fish:
And of course the Dia de Los Muertos inspired calavera:
So my first and third graders have been working on their own versions and I thought I would share some of their work in progress:
I will be sure to share their finished pieces too!
Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram! @tinyartroom (aren’t we glad that one was available!)
Raise your hand if you love cupcakes! ✋🏼 That’d be me! I love some cupcakes and so do the kids. They will love drawing these awesome Wayne Thiebaud inspired pieces. I’ve made these with my second graders before but I enjoyed putting a fun new spin on it with the painted paper background and the black construction paper shadows.
Step by step instructions coming soon. In the mean time, this is the awesome video I shared with my students prior to the making of the background. Thanks, Deep Space Sparkle!
