Owl Moon Paintings

Standard

Before the winter break started I read Owl Moon to my second graders. It was a great opportunity to integrate and discuss describing words and phrases and how we should apply that to our art as well.
So we drew out our cute little snowy owls on paper and then painted the background and the branch and the eyes. When they came back the next time, I had come across a “pinteresting” pin about adding glue to shaving cream and painting with it. So we decided to try that little experiment since we wanted our owls to look fluffy. They turned out so cute! Here are a few pics of them. 🙂

I didn’t get to do the shaving cream paint with all of the classes so some of them finished with oil pastels. I love them all!

Fourth graders are learning all about triangles so we are INTEGRATING and doing some awesome triangle art.  I found a triangle art lesson HERE and adapted it for use in a fourth grade classroom.  I also saw in the comments about the Vi Hart video and the kids La-HUUV (love) it.  Check out where we are so far…
