It’s been several years since I did my NC Lighthouse lesson with students. My third graders learn all about North Carolina and I have missed doing this lesson with them! I decided to mix it up a little and include a Van Gogh/Starry Night thread along with the space/color elements. Looking forward to seeing the results from this change!
We might add some sailboats to the water, depending on the time we have available. ⛵
This is a new spin on an old project. We discussed NC lighthouses and how awesome it is to visit one. We also watched a short little YouTube video on moving Cape Hatteras which they thought was really neat.
Check out some in progress pics and I will post finished pictures ASAP!
WOW! I am so impressed with these paintings! They all did their own thing with painting and I just love how they are turning out. Beautiful!
Fourth graders started these awesome lighthouse pictures today. We looked at some artists from North Carolina that paint seascapes and lighthouses and then looked at some of the famous lighthouses along the Outer Banks.
We started by drawing a few levels of waves and then they had to choose a lighthouse to draw. Then we added zentangle designs to the waves. Next week we will paint the sky and water. Debating on adding a ship. Last year we didn’t do the lighthouse but did 2 ships. I’ll probably let the kids decide.
I thought these two were already looking pretty awesome!
