I usually do Henri Rousseau cut paper collages with second graders but I found this new project over at Art with Mrs. Seitz and I just love it. The kids do too – they don’t want to leave class because they want to finish their paintings! It is taking several (maybe 4) classes but they are doing so great. I totally copied Mrs. Seitz on the learning goals: I can tell about Henri Rousseau; I can paint smoothly and with detail; I can paint this entire picture without using pencil!
Check them out!
Lots of tigers, ready for their stripes!
You know they’re into it when the room is dead silent because they are all so focused. Intense 2nd graders. 🙂
The tigers are finally complete! This took many weeks but the outcome has been worth it. Each tiger is so cute and full of personality.
